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 is a reflection of various influences in your life. You are aware of pregnancy, and it is possible that you recently spoke with someone about children or childbirth. Take this time to determine what you want for your future, and take appropriate action. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Lilly!

    I had two dreams back to back, the first one where I am getting married, even thou I am a single woman, and a very sweet friend offers to walk me down the aisle, cause I don’t have a father and I’m teary eyed. But my wedding takes place at sunset overlooking the ocean. And it’s all a happy time. I only see myself walking down the aisle, after that nothing. And the second dream was that a woman was giving birth in front of me. And the baby just popped out. And then she and her family looks at me as though telling me it was demonstration, to my surprise the doctor asks me to do the same. To stand or sit in the same position so it will be as easy. I squat where I am standing. And my baby pops out of me painlessly too. I mean.. I feel a lil nauseated and a lil slight cramp, but that’s that. My family is supporting me, the doctor was very well versed with what he wanted me to do and humble. And I did exactly that! Everything was happy happy. I felt extremely fulfilled.

Then 3 of us were giving birth same 1 room same time, their labour went well (one after another) , I was the 3rd one to do it and somehow I was not able to deliver. But it looked like I was not ready yet, although I kind of expected as big belly and two other familiar women were doing so …. I’ve kind of friend, yet couldn’t… so I stopped and was wondering why I can not deliver yet? Then the dream ended. We were all quite happy healthy and all in my dream. Although I couldn’t figure out fully who am I pregnant with or what all 3 same time same due time etc

      Your dream may be a reflection of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. There may be other people in your life that you recently had conversations with regarding children. There could be someone in your life who is pregnant or who recently gave birth. The women in your dream seem to be manifestations of various people in your life. Ensure that your dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Agnieszka!

    I had a dream about giving birth. I broke waters and I delivered while standing, and almost no pain was involved. I tried to prevent the baby from falling, but he ended up on the floor. A friend of mine tore the placenta so the boy could breath… I was with my family and boyfriend, but was weird.
