Despite her apparent tension with her sister Rachel and their relationship with Yaakov, Leah continued to look out for her. The Gemara in Brachos (60a) mentions that through prophecy, Leah had known that there would be 12 tribes of Israel. She was pregnant with her seventh child and calculated out that if it was a boy, only one available tribe would be left to Rachel (Leah had 6 sons already and the maidservants had 4). She prayed to Hashem to give her a daughter so that Rachel could have another son. Hashem answered and gave her Dinah.
