    Probably Frygg, she was the one who counseled with every deadly subject in the nine worlds, save mistletoe. In truth, it was Hermod who rode upon Sleipnir to attempt to rescue Baldr in the lore, but Loki's treachery in the form of an old woman prevented him from meeting the agreement he made with Hela to free Baldr.

    My information comes from the books The Children of Odin by Padraic Colum and Myths of the Norsemen by Helene A. Grueber.

    Freya or Freyr or Hel herself. I don't think Hel would appreciate having Baldr inside of her.
