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.

      Your dream may be a reflection of your thoughts regarding children. Your familial relationships also have appeared in this dream. It is possible that you are interested in having a child. You may have recently had a discussion about pregnancy or childbirth. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship, and take whatever action is appropriate. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Hassana!

    Hi I had a dream where I was in labor and trying to stop the baby from coming out so suddenly. I then had the baby and pulled it out myself and held it against me while the umbilical cord was still attached. What does this mean?

      Your dream may be a reflection regarding your feelings about children. It is possible that you had a discussion about pregnancy or childbirth. You may be interested in having a child. It is possible that the umbilical cord may be a symbol that you feel connected to a child or someone that you share a strong emotional relationship with. Have a great day, Chantelle!

    Although I was watching a Lifetime movie (which I never do) and it was about a woman who had a baby with a lover, I have never had this dream before. I’m 62 and have no children. I am an only child.

    I was due to deliver and was very concerned about the pain (having had painful periods) and I just wanted them to give me something before hand. Turns out I had no pain.

    It was boy and I, not having experience was overly concerned that I smothered him and was carrying him around, swaddled but wasn’t checking him enough and worried that I smothered him to death.

    Hi I dreamt I gave birth to a healthy baby boy, I was crying and looking up to the heavens so God can see my tears cos he catches each tear. I cradled him so lovingly and kissed hi. I was over joyed and I looked at him and said “hi baby” and he responded by putting his arm on my shoulder. I was happy and in love and complete. I can’t make babies naturally in real life

      Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. It is clear that your religious beliefs appeared in this dream as well. Since you are religious, unable to have children, and interested in having children, you may want to read the bible in regards to being unable to have children. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, TS!

      Birth is often a sign of transformation or a change in your life. In this case, it seems like you do not feel positively about those changes. You may even feel like your boyfriend can’t be a part of them, which is why you dreamed that he wasn’t. Whatever the case, the dream is just a dream, so it is up to you whether you actually adopt new changes in your life. Good luck, Abby!

    After having a conversation during the day about marriage with my boyfriend, I dreamt I was pregnant. I was pregnant without a babybump and very surprised when I found out I was already in labor. I gave birth very easily(no pain) in my own bathroom and soon after that, there was the baby. I layed it on top of the bathtub and I had a moment of doubt, should I hold it? Do I want it? But then I took the baby and held it, not sure if it was a boy or a girl, but it felt more like a girl. I held her, took her everywhere with me, breastfeeded her. My parents seemed very dissapointed in the dream, they even ignored me. I talked to my boyfriend about giving her up for adoption( I am only 23), we agreed. But I felt I already loved the baby and when I woke up, I missed my baby, my first thought was to find her until I realised it was a dream, she was never real. Now I wonder what my dream meant and why I can remember it this vividly and detailed?

    On June 6, 2019, I had a dream that I gave birth to a very healthy baby girl. I delivered her myself in the dream. I looked down and saw the crowning of her head and said, ”Oh my God there she is!” I gently guided her head out and shifted her shoulders to deliver the rest of her body. My husband, mother, and a few friends were vague figures in the background. I was so elated with joy. Also there was no pain at all. Just a smooth delivery.

    Hello, I just trumped that I was out in the shopping center with my two adult children and my mother and we were looking for a doctor’s office and couldn’t find it so we called the doctor and they told us to come straight in I walked into the building and moments later I had given birth to a baby girl who looked like she was already several months old and was clean with a full head of curly brown hair and a diaper on and the baby didn’t cry just was peacefully sleeping with a slight smile on her face. Next thing I know I’m walking out of the doctor’s office with my happy sleeping baby in my arms and I’m now in my bedroom laying on my bed with my baby next to me sleeping. I wake up in a panic realizing I had it yet fed my baby so I roll over pick her up and start patting her back as I have her on my shoulder to wake her up and she’s just slightly smiling the whole time. She finally wakes up and immediately says mama. My older girls and my mother walk into the room and the baby keeps saying mama, mama. They all hear it and we are all shocked! And I said I can’t believe her first word is Mama but I’m pleased about that. Then I said I wonder what your father is going to think. As we are currently going through a nasty divorce. But I said he can go ahead and do a genetic test this baby is 100% his and now since we are still technically married we need to adjust our paperwork to show that we have five daughters together. I put the baby into a car seat and carry her through our Baron house, as he just removed all of our valuables from the home and hid them. I was talking under my breath about how sad I was that he had stolen all of our valuables and memories, as I am in real life, and he appeared. So I show the baby to him and tell him it’s hers and he’s welcome to genetically test her to confirm that if you would like. He just looks at her says nothing and walks away. Next thing I know I am at a dance studio and the artistic director says to me that there is never a time where all four of my children have their phones on them and all four of them are charged. And I just said to him we have lots of chargers but a lot of them are broken and I can’t afford to get new ones. He gives me a displeased look and I just walk away. And then I wake up. What does all of this mean?

    Hi I dreamt a while ago that me and 2 of my closest female friends at the office office were about to give birth at the same hospital only hours apart. We were helping each other with the things we need for giving birth. After helping the first one, the second one got into labor and gave birth. Then it was me who got into labor then gave birth. Even after giving birth yet we were still helping each other.
    In reality we are currently experiencing difficult situations at work that we might be soon close down due to debts in the company and we are currently tying to fix and save it. Hopefully this would be a good omen/sign.

      It may be that your subconscious mind senses that everything would go smoother if you guys worked together to solver your difficulties. Pregnancy and giving birth are often auspicious signs of new changes and transformations, so it seems like your subconscious sees the transformative potential of joining forces. Best of luck, PK!

Rebirth is often depicted in such a manner, and it is possible that you are thinking about what the future holds for those in your life and potentially for yourself. It is certain that the most beneficial thing for you and for everyone in the world is to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Think about the animals in your dream, and determine which behaviors may lead to such a rebirth. Determine your goals, and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Ganesh!
