Apollo and Artemis
Leto searched for a place to give birth while pregnant with Apollo and Artemis, but no place would welcome her because they feared Hera’s wrath.
She suffered a nine day labor on a barren island named Delos, because jealous Hera prevented a midwife from going to help Leto.
Apollo and his twin Artemis were both honored for purity, for their remote attitudes towards others, and for inclinations to disappear from sight for long periods of time, she into the forest, he into the realm of the Hyperboreans.
