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.

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.

    I had a dream I was walking in a hospital. As I was walking I gave birth to a baby in my trousers. As I got to the desk I explained to a lady that the baby has already come but that wasn’t why I was here. She asked where it was and I lifted up my left trouser leg to hold a baby and saw it was a boy. I was panicked asking if he was premature which he wasn’t as he was two weeks early. She explained to be premature it would have been another week. I was panicking I didn’t have anything ready yet. It then dawned on me the baby was lifeless and I couldnt hold him properly as the umbilical cord was going down my trouser leg and how I hadn’t birthed the placenta. I kept him upsidedown and rubbing him to try and stimulate him. I knew he needed to be dry but my trousers were holding the moisture and was worried about him getting dry. Eventually he starting moving and then I panicked how he didn’t even have a name unlike my other son. I was walking through the hospital corridors getting soaked in my trousers trying to find a room to be able to get the placenta out, get clean and help my baby but I couldn’t find anywhere. I went into the toilet, my was even more soaked when I was found by the lady and she put a neck height screen up on the door and explained they still don’t have space and I could get sorted here. She left. I was still trying to hold my baby and get undressed hoping noone would see me and still worried he had no name. What does this mean? I’m not pregnant.

      You are not pregnant, so dreams about pregnancy may be reflections of your desires or influences. It is possible that you are interested in having another child. You may have spoken with someone who has become pregnant or recently given birth. This dream should guide you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This will bring you many benefits in the future. Have a great day, Megan!

Allow this dream to influence you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you.

      You are expecting a child, so your dreams are reflection of your knowledge that you are pregnant. The ease of birth is a sign that you may want a simple birth in your waking life. You may be aware that your child is a girl or you may be wanting to have a daughter. Ensure that your dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Julia!
