No, no, you've got it confused.  It is Erzulie *Freda* who is represented at Saut d'Eau.  Petitions for fertility may be directed at her, at the "Vyej Mirak" in town, or most often at Dambala and Ayida Wedo.  Dambala and Ayida Wedo, the "serpent and the rainbow", are thought to be coupling when the waterfall of Saut d'Eau creates a mist which produces a rainbow.

Sometimes.  This is rare, though, Erzulie Dantor does not vomit blood whenever she appears.

Peace and love,
