What Does It Mean When You Dream About Giving Birth?

By on September 4, 2017

This can be an odd dream to have. If you have given birth to children before, then it could be just a blend of your subconscious memories. If you have never given birth before though, having this type of dream could really confuse it. Normally, giving birth in a dream does not mean that you will actually give birth soon in real life. Instead, this dream type is associated with a variety of different dream interpretations.

 Dream About Giving Birth

When you dream about giving birth, it can mean that you are facing great changes in your normal life. You may feel like a new beginning is just around the corner, and you are ready for the emotional, spiritual or physical transformation. If you dream about pregnancy as well, it can mean that great events and changes are just around the corner. If you actually are pregnant though, a dream about giving birth may just be due to your expectations and fears for the future. We will also cover the common variations and interpretations of this dream meaning.

1. Witnessing the Birth of a Child

If you watch someone else giving birth in a dream, it means that you will soon have financial success. If a woman dreams about giving birth, it may represent a sense of happiness or contentment.

2. Lonely Women

If someone is lonely and female, dreaming about giving birth means that she feels like there are rumors about her in real life. When a man dreams that he is giving birth, it means that he is about to go through a difficult time socially or at work.

3. Helping With the Birth

Helping someone to give birth represents abundance and a sense of honor. When there is a good birth, it is a symbol of creativity, happiness and luck. Meanwhile, a difficult birth indicates major issues that you will have to overcome. If the birth in the dream is quite tiring, it may indicate that there are complications ahead of you in life. If the birth is unexpected, it may be a sign of misfortune.

4. Gender

It is said that giving birth to a girl in the dream means that you will soon be free of all of your troubles. If you give birth to a boy, it is said to represent tiredness and fatigue. Having twins symbolizes abundance and wealth. An easy birth also means joy and good luck.

5. You Are Giving Birth

When you are giving birth in the dream, it may mean that you have a new attitude toward life. You recognize that you must make efforts to achieve your dreams and take responsibility for your part in each situation. If you are a single woman, an old wives’ tale says that you will first experience sadness and misfortune before experiencing happiness.

Helping With the Birth

Other Dream Interpretations

Often, giving birth signals that there is good news arriving from abroad or exceptionally good luck. It can mean that good health and financial improvements are in your future. If you hear that someone else has given birth, it means that you will soon be saved from a difficult or complicated situation. It may also mean that you will achieve the success that you have been waiting so long for.

At its heart, giving birth is the ultimate transformation. From the love of two people, an entire other being is born. It is the ultimate new beginning and transformation. As such, a happy birth tends to represent abundance, new beginnings and the ability to work toward what you want.

Obviously, the ultimate meaning of the dream depends on what interpretation you give the dream. If a friend recently gave birth in your waking life, then the dream may just be representing some of the subconscious thoughts, feelings and memories that are going through your head. If you want to start a family, the dream may even be directly related to your desire to have children of your own. To really figure out what your dream means, you ave to figure out the situation in the dream, how you felt in the dream and who was involved. Then, you have to decide how these factors relate to your waking life. By doing this, you can create your own, individualized dream interpretation.

      Perhaps the dream child represents your younger self and the kind of love and happiness your inner self needs to find in your waking life. The child could also represent some kind of transformation that you’d like to have in your waking life as well.

    I gave birth in a family members house and my partner helped deliver it. It was an extremely easy birth, no complications, basically fell right out! Can’t remember too much but it was rather real.

      Giving birth often represents a transformation or life change of some kind, so this dream most likely shows a change approaching in your life. It seems like you have the support you need to easily navigate the change since your family members and partner are there supporting you in the dream.

    I dreamed that I watched someone giving birth, then my son and I took the baby with us. The birth was easy but really messy, then the mother walked away. There was also a second child who was dirty from being born. What could this mean?

      Birth is often a sign of change. Perhaps this shows a change approaching that will affect you and your son. It may be messy to get through at times, but it doesn’t sound like a negative change based on your dream.

      Giving birth may represent a great change or adjustment in your life. This could be anything from starting a new job to growing up. It could also literally represent a desire to have a child, although the name could be completely random.

      Birth is the ultimate transformation, so perhaps this dream represents a change approaching in your life. The fact that you were certain the baby would be a boy may mean you feel certain about how the change will affect you, even if that puts you at odds with everyone else around you.

    Got this dream just a while ago. I am helplessly trying to walk in a road full of mud when a car pass with me.Just ahead of me, the car stop and the side door open. When I check it,I saw the a female in the backseat (only one) about to deliver a baby. Half of the baby’s body (head front) is hanging already in the mother’s part. I was shocked and try to help her and the mother was able to deliver it safely. I grab the two feet and hang it up (like lion ling). I saw some villagers (2-5 persons) and shouted for hell but they ignored us. And that’s the time and I was angered by it and confront the villagers.

    What’s the meaning of it? As what I read above, tiring delivery means misfortune. Am I going to experience misfortune this year? Would appreciate if someone can explain it. Sorry for my bad english. Thanks

      This dream could be an indication of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. Rather than misfortune, you should expect that an important change will occur this year.

      This dream is either a memory or a thought related to Caesarian birth. It is clear that you are interested in caring for your body. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times.

    I’m a 19 year old male & I dreamt that I delivered a baby very easily, the child literally slid out into my hands. The person giving birth is real but I cannot remember who it was at all. And also the birth happened in some sort of transport vehicle; either a train or maxi. The person was also very happy when I delivered the child

    I dreamt I was assisting a family friend give birth to twins. It was an easy and satisfying birth. When the first baby came out, the second one was on their way out and that caught me by surprise, in a good way. I didn’t know she was having twins. One of the newborns had to be rapped with sheep’s skin as it was the only thing there to wrap and keep her warm with. The newborns were both girls. The birth took place on a dirt road.

      Giving birth is often a sign of change or creative expression. In this case, the change may be something you sense happening in your friend’s life or something that may be occurring in your relationship with each other.

    In my dream i saw my sister giving birth to a baby boy but in my dream there was a lot of blood and we had to keep him in a bucket with water to get rid of the blood and finally wrapped him in a towel and he stopped bleeding and yawned happily and never once did he cry he was happy i found it so creepy that i still have chills….

    Ps. My sister does indeed have a son and he was born not too early but i was not there with her nor have i seen her child yet.

      Pregnancy and giving birth often represent changes. In this case, the change may be difficult to make, which is why the birth process was so traumatic in the dream. It is also entirely possible that the dream just reflects the fact that she did actually give birth to a son, although you weren’t actually there to see it.

    I’m about to be 27, I’ve never given birth and I’m single. I had a dream that I was floating in space and a star entered my womb. I watched the light come towards me and enter through my stomach. I became pregnant, nurtured my womb, and then I gave birth alone in the vacuum of space to the Earth. I could feel everything… the joy of the pregnancy, the pain of giving birth, and the love of my baby, which was Earth. It was a bizarre dream and I can’t stop thinking about it.

      This is a particularly powerful dream. This is related to your understanding of your place in the universe, and it is also an indication of your spiritual beliefs. This incredibly positive dream will guide you in a positive direction throughout your life. The pregnancy aspect of this dream is an indication of your understanding of creation and life.

      The hair aspect of your dream seems to be a sign that you are considering making a change in your life. Your hair is often a manifestation of how you display yourself to the outside world. The conversation between you and your brother could be a reflection of the relationship between you and your family members. If there is something that you want to do with your life, then you may want to speak with your mother about her thoughts and feelings.

      Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. It is possible that you are aware that your sister is interested in having a child. You may be interested in having children as well. You may believe that your sister is promiscuous, or you are thinking about the personal lives of other social and emotional relationships. Regardless, nourish your relationship with your sister by spending additional time with her in person.

      You may be thinking about having a child. It is possible that you are aware that someone in your life is pregnant at this time. If you feel that there is a specific action that you should take, then do whatever you feel is appropriate.

      Pregnancy is often a sign of transformation, so your dream probably means that you sense a coming change or transformation in your life (probably not a pregnancy, but it’s always possible). The fact that you suddenly end up not being pregnant may mean that you don’t want any changes in your life and wish you could stop them from happening.

        The dream seems to indicate that you sense an approaching change in your cousin’s life. It is also possible that the change involves the relationship between you and your cousin–it may be transforming, growing or changing in some way because pregnancy dreams typically reflect an approaching change.

    Hello, I am 16. I haven’t had any children. I have had another dream about giving birth to another deer/human species to adapt to the planet and I was being inseminated with this alien DNA by my father. The first two times the alien had died and I felt the miscarriage. I felt the pain of it all and I had gone into a mild depression but, I tried to not focus on my personal feelings and more on the fact of saving the human race. The third time we did the experiment had gone correctly and I had moved to Spain to raise the new creature and get a degree. Last night I had a dream where I was pregnant for 9 months and was happy. I didn’t know the father but, it didn’t matter to me or the people around me. I was on a swamp/lake house in the country. I gave birth but, I didn’t remember any of it and the baby wasn’t there. I forgot all about it. A few days later my grandmother had the baby in her arms singing a lullaby. I asked her who’s it was and she said it was mine. Then I suddenly was back in time when I’m giving birth but, it was different. I was in a bathroom with red towels on it and I remember pushing but no pain and I had a baby girl, Mia, raised her for 5 years and then woke up.

      Pregnancies often reflect major changes and transitions in life. In this case, your pregnancy may be a sign that you are undergoing a change in your waking life. It may feel completely unfamiliar, which is why you were pregnant with an unfamiliar species in your dream. Neither pregnancy seems particularly traumatic or difficult, so your subconscious mind must sense that you have the ability to navigate this major life change in your waking life, even if it is an unfamiliar one.

    I had a dream where I was with my mother then felt something looked down and seen a baby head. My mother went to get towels or blanket. It didn’t hurt then I had the baby in my hand and there was blood or fluid on the baby eyes and stomach. I tried to clean it off when it didn’t cry I rub his chest, he started moving then cried and I woke up 😐 What does that mean!?!

      The dream seems to show an approaching change in your life, although not necessarily a pregnancy. While the change may come as a surprise like the change in your dream, it seems like your subconscious mind is confident that you will be able to adjust to it once it happens.

      The fact that you are actually planning for a pregnancy means this kind of dream may just be simple wish fulfillment. Pregnancy often means a transformation or change in your dreams, so the dream may mean you are planning for a major change in your waking life.

    I’m 23 years old, never dated, never had children, yet I keep having this reoccurring dream that I’m pregnant or in labor. In the dream, my friends and family are all happy for me, they are encouraging and they are elated. Over time, my attitude about the situation has changed. It used to frighten me at first, as I felt I was too young, still had to finish school, and there was no father. Recently, I’ve actually been happy and relaxed. The other night, I finally gave birth to four sons and actually saw them and held them. What might that mean?

      Pregnancy and birth are typically a sign of transformation and change. It seems like you are coming to terms with changes in your life and accepted the fact that you are now an adult. As you mentioned, you even felt happy and relaxed in your more recent dreams.
