Ninmah

Ninmah, in Mesopotamian mythology (Sumerian and Babylonian-Akkadian) was a Mother Goddess, probably an early syncretization of Ninhursaga.

In creation legend she was depicted as a midwife while the mother goddess Nammu made different kinds on human individuals from lumps of clay at a feast given by Enki to celebrate the creation of humankind.

She also is regarded as being the mother of the goddess Uttu by Enki.
