Yemaya, mother of waters and fertility. From her was born everything that is known.
Yemaya is the primitive queen, the sacred goddess of African origin. She is the owner of the riches of all the seas and oceans, their pearls, shells, seashells, corals and fish. It is the goddess who brings the rains to nourish the earth.
Yemaya also reigns over fertility. That is why she is described as the patroness of pregnant women and is begged to ask for her protection.
