Aysyt or Ajysyt (Sakha: Айыыһыт Ayııhıt, pronounced [ajɯːhɯt]) is the Yakut mother goddess of the Turkic Yakut people from the Lena River region of Siberia. The name means "birthgiver" and may also be called the "Mother of Cradles". Her full name is given as Ajysyt-ijaksit-khotan, meaning "Birthgiving nourishing mother".
Ajysyt was responsible for conducting the soul of a newborn child to its birth and attended every birth. Women would channel Ajysyt, believing that doing so would relieve them of pain during childbirth. She kept a golden book in which she recorded each one. She is said to have lived on a mountain top in a house with seven stories, from which she controlled the fate of the world. The word ajysyt is also used to describe a male spirit that oversees the birth of male animals, such as a male horse, while the use of the word is feminine when relating to the birth of a female horse.
In legend she appeared to a white youth out of the roots of the Cosmic Tree (or world pillar of Yryn-al-tojon) which itself stood beside a lake of milk. By suckling the youth from her breasts she caused his strength to increase a hundredfold.
