In Latvian Mythology, Dekla is the Goddess of destiny and fortune., especially of children and infants, and is said to cradle newborn children against her breast.

She is considered part of a trinity of destiny deities (Latvia's take on the Fates) which includes her two sisters, Laima and Karta. Dekla plays an integral role as the beginning of destiny, while Laima is the planner of destiny. Who knows what Karta does, but I'm sure it's important.
