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 manifestation of your thoughts and pregnancy and raising a child. You are aware that children seem to grow up extremely quickly. You may be interested in having a child with your partner. Make a decision about what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Juju!

It is possible that you are interested in having a child, or you have recently had discussions about children or childbirth. The presence of your family members may be an indication of your familial relationships and influences. Make a decision about what you want for your future and take appropriate action.

      Birth and death are both indications of your knowledge of change. The uncertainty of the gender is an indication of your thoughts of uncertainty about the future. Concerns about murder may be a reflection of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. 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, Lee!

    I am 51… just had a dream that I gave birth alone in a bathroom – she came out effortlessly (not like my real deliveries) I had to pay her back to make her cry – but before she cried she was alert and looking around. I felt the warmth holding her.
    I just find it all so weird- I barely dream & I’ve NEVER dreamt of giving birth! It was so detailed and vivid.

      You are aware that this dream is related to pregnancy, but you seem to be interested in understanding the child coming through the abdomen. This may be related to your thoughts regarding cesarean birth. It is possible that you feel that these twins may come easily. The face in the stomach could be a sign that they will be a reflection of yourself. Make a decision about what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Christina!

    Hi I dreamt while i was pregnant and about to give birth . my aunt and cousin were present in the dream, they were actually the ones who took me to the hospital so when we arrived at the hospital they confirmed that I am about to give birth and I asked them if I could call my boyfriend and let him know that I am about to deliver. When I notified him that I’m about to deliver he said “I will look after you and the baby ” then I cried after that. Really trying to interpret the dream but I’m failing

I saw the nurses clean up the baby girl, I slept and woke up only to be presented with a 6years old girl. I was confused about what happened with the baby and the grown up girl looked like me in a way. Please what does it mean

      The dream most likely shows some kind of transformation in your life, but you might not be ready for it. Pregnancy and birth are often a sign of a change or transformation. The fact that the baby was actually a child seems to show that you feel as if these changes are moving too fast, or you aren’t actually ready for them yet.
