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.

      Dreams about pregnancy and childbirth are indications of your thoughts regarding children. You may have recently had a discussion with someone about children. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings. Give your partner an opportunity to share themselves with you as well. Have a great day, Ani!

    I am a 40 yr old woman with three children and married. I dreamt that I was in labor. I could feel the contractions but no pain. My husband was there and acted as he had when I gave birth to our children in real life (supportive, nervous, etc.) But I was focused and determined on my labor. I was wearing a white nightgown and kneeling on a white sheet. He left to do something. Whatever it was, he was very reluctant to leave me but I assured him he could go. I did not feel anger or resentment, only that he had to go and see to his responsibilities. I gave birth alone to a perfect baby girl. I felt relieved, happy and satisfied. At no point did I feel scared or nervous, only focused. I woke up feeling calm.

      The labor aspect of this dream could be a manifestation of your memories or thoughts about childbirth. Your husband’s behaviors are reflections of his responsibilities in life at this time. It is clear that this dream should guide you in a positive direction. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with your husband in person. Have a great day, Sara!

    What does it mean when you dream of having a baby and three people are at the foot of the bed helping you. The baby is born quickly and the dream ends with me holding the baby. I was happy in this dream and it woke me up right away once the baby was delivered. I smiled at the baby and woke up.

      The baby within the dream may be an indication of your thoughts regarding pregnancy or children. The three people could be indications of close social or familial relationships that you trust. It is possible that you are interested in having a child. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Aj!

    I had a dream that I was pregnant and in labor. We were at some sort of outside event, there was a huge field. I was having contractions and I could feel them. My husband was with me and so were my parents. My dad pointed across the field and told me to go ‘that way’ (which meant south, I have no idea why that would indicate south) and have the baby. He told me hurry, it will be good to have him there. We walked the direction he pointed and ended up inside an old fashioned building. A couple of ladies helped me to get situated.I could feel the contractions and a baby boy was born, relatively easy compared to my real pregnancies. The baby boy was a different race and I was puzzled in my dream,my husband wasn’t concerned and we were both happy. I was concerned about breastfeeding him correctly and then I woke up thinking that was a very odd dream.

    I would appreciate any insight you can offer.

The race of the child may be an indication of various influences that you may have in your life. Nourish your relationship with your partner by spending additional time together in person. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Shannon!

    I had a dream of a stranger woman giving birth to four children one by one, the children were coming from her mouth/throat but it was easy, I never saw the woman in real life.

    After the babies were born I was happy and looking at them, I dont remember if I hold them, I think I did. But I was thinking to myself, “my babies and that I am glad they are here, that I will not have other children anymore”.

    I had a dream of giving birth to a baby girl, but the child seemed to be much older than a newborn (the girl could walk and speak already). The delivery was very easy, almost no pain and everything happened very quickly.
    In my dream I kept noticing that the baby was naked all the time.

    Does that mean anything?

    Hi. Last night I dreamt of someone else in a well lit bright white room and she was wearing a white gown giving birth to a baby ( couldn’t see her face ) and her baby felt like a girl in my dream

    And after she gave birth I was on the opposite side giving birth to a baby boy ( a painless experience) I was so happy in that moment and in my dream and my baby boy grew a bit and was smiling back at me

    Both births were natural

    The entire room was joyful and I couldn’t see my mothers face per say but I could feel her presence.

    I’m curious about your thoughts…
    I had a dream where first there was a bomb threat at the building I was at but the actors from Avengers helped because there was an Avengers event there. After that dissipated, I was at first sitting on a hospital bed but stood up and was then in a beautiful and peaceful courtyard that was part of that same building. I insisted to be held and hugged by my celebrity husband and father of my unborn child. (Interesting lol) I started moving up and down to get my body moving and then he helped me to sit on the ground. I gave birth to a baby girl but she wasn’t crying. She was breathing and looked so peaceful. It was a fairly peaceful birth for her and I. Next thing I knew my celeb hubby brought her over to me all wrapped up sleeping soundly and we were both emotional and so happy. Any thoughts?

    Last night I dreamt of giving birth to a deformed baby boy. However the scene was we were already in the hospital room and my mom is carrying my deformed son. Then suddenly he turned into a healthy baby boy. Then the next second, instead of a baby boy, it became a cockatoo. Then the cockatoo looks juvenile but not newly born so I was complaining to the doctors if that was really my baby because baby cockatoos should be bald. The dream was a bit weird because I am not married nor in a relationship both in ths dream and in my waking life. I haven’t been dreaming for a long time now but I remember that before going to sleep, a guy that I was seeing told me “sweet dreams”. Then when I woke up, the dream was so vivid but weird. Now, I got an offer for a new job opportunity. Do you think this is all related to my dream? And if not, what could be the interpretation for my dream?

      Dreams about birth are often indications of your thoughts regarding pregnancy and birth. The changes from deformity to cockatoo may be indications of your uncertainty about the future. You were offered a job opportunity, which is a symbol of change. Birth is also a symbol of change. Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Khammy!

    I had a dream last night sep 1st that I had a unexpected little boy. I was in the car when he decided to arrive, I was around people but I couldn’t really see their faces and I was completely unaware of my pregnancy. I was shocked that I had a baby and I’ve always said I want a son and I was absolutely shook and elated that I had a child and a son!

    Earlier this week I dreamt that the father of my soon-to-be 25-year old daughter was pregnant and gave birth to our daughter. Just before giving birth he was very happy, excited and holding on to me. It has been 15 years since we last saw my daughter’s father nor has there been any type of contact. Prior to 15 years ago, it had been 8 years of no contact. He stopped paying child support 24 years ago. Thank you.

      This dream may be a manifestation of your relationship with him in the distant past. It was possible that he was positive and supportive during your pregnancy. However, his behaviors seem to be indications that he was a negative or harmful influence in your life. Allow thoughts of him to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere.

          I had a dream that I was in a hospital type room (all white, bright lighting, & the Dr/nurses in white). I gave birth to 7 babies. Genders were more boys to girls. It looked like it may have been a c section. I guess I’d have to w that many 🤷🏻‍♀️.
          In my dream I was looking in the room as if I was watching myself delivering these babies.
          I woke up through the night and when I fell back to sleep I dreamt again I was giving birth to multiple babies. But this time I was laying on a sidewalk and a stranger (man) came to help me. He called 911 and he was doing as the dispatch was telling him till they got there. That’s when I woke up. I remember him asking me what I do for work (dispatch wanted to know) and he said I was bleeding.
