Kybele… from the cradle of civilization
In 7000 B.C. Anatolia was the center of agricultural and community development. During this period, Kybele became known and respected as the Mother goddess. Hundreds of small clay Kybele figurines have been found throughout contemporary Turkey in archeological excavations. The statuettes depict the fertility goddess as a plump woman sitting on a throne, giving birth, flanked by leopards.
Today, Kybele once again symbolizes hope for the future – a future that offers every mother the opportunity to experience childbirth in a compassionate, respectful and supportive environment. Safe childbirth makes a difference in the lives of mothers, babies and families of the world.
