Originally a child-devouring Yakṣa from Hindu lore named Hāritī, but she repents and coverts to Buddhism. In Japan, the deity’s name was transliterated as Kariteimo

In Japan, Kariteimo is the protector of children and the goddess of easy delivery, child rearing, parenting, harmony between husband and wife, love, and the well-being and safety of the family. Childless women also pray in hopes of becoming pregnant.
Kariteimo is just one of Japan’s many deities of children & motherhood.
