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 last night that I gave birth to a tiny little baby girl. I don’t think I even felt pregnant or knew I was pregnant, all of a sudden I felt something and then I reached down and I could feel her head and I pushed once and pulled her out – no pain or anything! I pulled her on my chest she was so tiny. My husband was laying next to me sleeping. I feel like the baby and I were communicating through our thoughts but I can’t remember the details. It felt like a positive dream and symbolic about positive changes in my life. I was completely surprised by it but felt calm and happy about it in the dream even though I don’t want children right now and haven’t been thinking about it recently. This article resonated with me, thank you for sharing it! If you have any thoughts I’d love to hear them 🙂

      Birth is often a sign of change and transformation in your dreams, so this dream probably doesn’t relate directly to childbirth. The fact that you feel positive about the baby and are communicating with it shows that you feel positive about the upcoming change in your life.

      A birth may symbolize change or transformation. The fact that the baby was breech may mean you think the change could be difficult. Meanwhile, the added fingers could mean the change isn’t quite what you expected it to be.

      The yellow could be a sign of jaundice, or it may represent an emotion like happiness. Pregnancy is a symbol of change in your dreams, so this dream may mean you feel like a change is coming that will bring happiness. The presence of your mother may also mean you feel like your mother will be supportive and positive about the change in your life.

      This dream may be an indication that you are thinking about pregnancy. You may have recently spoken with someone about children or childbirth. Make a decision about what you feel is appropriate. You may want to speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well.

      The birth may represent some kind of transformation approaching in your life. The fact that it was so traumatic and surgery may mean you aren’t sure if you are ready for the transformation, or you are afraid of it. Thankfully, the actual changes in your life will most likely be easier than what happened in your dream, so I wouldn’t worry too terribly much about it.

    I had a dream where I gave birth to a child alone in a kitchen standing up, pretty old school. But it was very easy and not painful at all. I told my friends and family about the birth and I thought lI was going to be a “single mom”. I felt pretty neutral the entire time.

      Your dream could be an indication of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. Make a decision about what you feel is appropriate for the future. If there is someone in your life that you want to nourish a relationship with, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings.
