Hekate Kourotrophos?

Nurse of the Young, or Protector of Children. Epithet might be misspelled. A woman on another message board was asking me about this aspect of Hekate, if I had any info. I thought I might, but I only had a snippet from my own essay more related to the lack of proof that Hekate's knife is related to midwivery at all.

Though I see Kourotrophos on several websites there's little about how the epithet came about. Anyone have any ideas for me?
