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.

      This dream may be an indication of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. The presence of your ex is a reflection of your previous social and emotional relationship with him. If you are no longer maintaining a relationship with your ex, then allow thought of this person to fade. Make a decision about what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Girlly!

    Last night I dreamt that another friend and myself were in public and suddenly in full labor. We both were pushing out a baby, we are not pregnant in real life. I look down and I can see the baby head coming out but I wasn’t in any pains whatsoever, but it took a couple of good pushes and the whole baby came out bloody and silent. I got a little worried that the baby was not crying but after rubbing it’s back the baby began crying. I can’t remember where the baby went after that but I got up and began walking towards a store to make a purchase. I was walking very slowly and my stomach looked like someone who has recently delivered a baby though I wasn’t in any pain this entire time. In my dream I felt a sense of contentment that I delivered safely and the baby was healthy.

    Me and this guy are on bad terms, but the night before, I’ve had a dream that he will contact me by phone and I got happy to see his name on my phone , and out of nowhere, we were watching tv and I thought to myself, “I’m so glad I gave it more time!” Now, in this dream I had last nite, I was in the hospital and I was in labor and the same guy was my husband in the dream, and he stood beside me as I gave birth to twins. I hardly felt pain, but I was very scared of the pain beforehand. I am not pregnant and I don’t want kids.

    Last night I had a dream that I was at a work meeting at a former employer. And all of a sudden I was pregnant. We went to a hospital and I pushed and pushed and pushed to no avail. Baby never came. And then I went on with life. When I woke up my belly was hurting. I cant remember if I held a baby or not. I think I did but I’m not sure.

    Last night I had a dream that I gave birth alone at night to a baby girl, suddenly she was crawling, then walking and the same height as my 5 year old daughter. Then I remember I forgot to birth the placenta and took it out by giving a good push. I am nine months pregnant with a boy.

    I had this dream, where I was siting in the waiting area of a hospital, I had this feeling that the baby is coming as I reached down I could feel the head, and the next moment the baby was born. I told my Mom (mom -past away last year)
    to go and call a nurse. As she left I saw i was holding a baby girl.
    I had no pain got up and walked to the other room.
    I’m not pregnant.

      The pregnancy most likely shows an approaching change or transformation in your life. The fact that your mother is there in the dream most likely shows that you wish that she could be there with you as you try to navigate all of these changes and transformations in your waking life.

      Pregnancy and giving birth dreams are often a sign of a transformation or a change in your life. The fact that your husband pushed the head back in and it never reemerged seems to indicate that you or your husband (or both) is not ready for this upcoming change.

      If someone else is having the baby and delivering it, it may mean that you are watching the world around you go through great, positive changes without experiencing any of them for yourself. The recent divorce may be part of the reason why your subconscious feels this way. Thankfully, dreams only reflect your subconscious mental state, so it is entirely possible that positive changes are in your future–you just have to go after them!
