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.

    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.

    I dreamed I had a very very easy birth. My boyfriend was also with him. Very supportive and helping me. Did not see the gender of child. The doctor was also there and birth was so easy. Doctor didn’t have to do anything. Also, at the same time as me giving birth in my dream, two strangers got hit by a car and died. I never saw the death happen. Just the buzz in the hospital.

      Birth is typically a sign of transformation. The fact that there are three babies most likely symbolizes that a major transformation is coming your way in life, or perhaps you just want a transformation to happen. The mouth aspect of the dream may represent that you have something you want to say or express that will help the change occur.

      Your dream may be a reflection of your emotional relationship with your partner and the stresses that you are navigating at this time. Birth is often a symbol for change, so you may feel that you are reaching a new point in your relationship and in your life. Speak with your partner about your thoughts regarding the future.

    I had a dream I watched my sister deliver a boy baby in my house, it was a very quick and easy birth. The baby started gagging and I used my finger to clear his throat of mucus and then he started sucking my finger. I then took him into the kitchen where my father (whom is deceased) was standing and showed him the baby. My sister then walked out and I told her she needed to deliver the placenta to which she replied oh yeah I don’t think there is one and pointed to the baby who had an uncut cord with nothing attached to the end. It was very vivid

      It is possible that your sister is pregnant or you know someone who is thinking about having children. The presence of your late father is an indication of your emotional relationship with him. Allow this dream to guide you to honor the memory of your father by sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life.

      This dream may be a reflection of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. You might be thinking about children, or you may have spoken with someone about childbirth. The person who appeared in the dream could be a sign of stresses that you are navigating in your life.

        Your dream may be related to your thoughts and pregnancy. It is possible that you are interested in having a child. The bite may be a reflection of how you may behave in similar relationships.

      Pregnancy and birth are often a sign of change, so perhaps this dream is just representing a change in your life. The fact that you are a teacher in the dream could be significant and could mean you feel as if you are taking on the role of teacher in your waking life for someone close to you.

    I dreamt that I was pregnant and was walking. My water burst on the way and I could not reach the hospital on time. I then pushed down and the entire embryonic sack came out with my baby inside. I then opened the sack and my baby girl came out crying with the fluids on her. I then cleaned her and wrapped her in a blanket and she was contented and happy sucking on her tum.

      You may have recently had a discussion with someone about pregnancy or childbirth. You may be interested in having a child. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. You will draw positive people into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times.

    I dreamed of my sister giving birth at the public vehicle . The baby was full of blood and the placenta followed after the baby came out . Im afraid that the baby will soon die so I held the baby and rushed to the nearest hospital . After a while I saw the baby at the hospital , in good condition , clean and sleeping . The gender of the baby was not revealed . Then I wake up with worried and disturbed.

      Pregnancy often represents change, so perhaps you sense a change or transformation in your sister’s life. You may be concerned that the change will not happen or that there will be a problem, which is why the baby struggled so much at first in the dream.

      Perhaps the dream child represents your younger self and the kind of love and happiness your inner self needs to find in your waking life. The child could also represent some kind of transformation that you’d like to have in your waking life as well.

    I gave birth in a family members house and my partner helped deliver it. It was an extremely easy birth, no complications, basically fell right out! Can’t remember too much but it was rather real.

      Giving birth often represents a transformation or life change of some kind, so this dream most likely shows a change approaching in your life. It seems like you have the support you need to easily navigate the change since your family members and partner are there supporting you in the dream.

    I dreamed that I watched someone giving birth, then my son and I took the baby with us. The birth was easy but really messy, then the mother walked away. There was also a second child who was dirty from being born. What could this mean?

      Birth is often a sign of change. Perhaps this shows a change approaching that will affect you and your son. It may be messy to get through at times, but it doesn’t sound like a negative change based on your dream.

      Giving birth may represent a great change or adjustment in your life. This could be anything from starting a new job to growing up. It could also literally represent a desire to have a child, although the name could be completely random.

I had a boy with clothes holding him in my hands like it was a big baby already in clothes didnt see his face or stuff like that but I gave birth to baby and afterwards was like I was having a big baby boy on my hands.

      Birth is the ultimate transformation, so perhaps this dream represents a change approaching in your life. The fact that you were certain the baby would be a boy may mean you feel certain about how the change will affect you, even if that puts you at odds with everyone else around you.

    Got this dream just a while ago. I am helplessly trying to walk in a road full of mud when a car pass with me.Just ahead of me, the car stop and the side door open. When I check it,I saw the a female in the backseat (only one) about to deliver a baby. Half of the baby’s body (head front) is hanging already in the mother’s part. I was shocked and try to help her and the mother was able to deliver it safely. I grab the two feet and hang it up (like lion ling). I saw some villagers (2-5 persons) and shouted for hell but they ignored us. And that’s the time and I was angered by it and confront the villagers.

    What’s the meaning of it? As what I read above, tiring delivery means misfortune. Am I going to experience misfortune this year? Would appreciate if someone can explain it. Sorry for my bad english. Thanks
