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 am 53 yrs and have children and grandchildren of my own. I dreamed that I delivered a baby all by myself (my daddy was in the room and after the birth I was delivering the placenta/fluids etc and i told my daddy to move his feet. My daddy passed away on 2005). After that the baby boy was beautiful and was turning a little blue so I started rubbing him and he was fine. I asked a co worker to get me a towel to wrap him in and she said no. So I got up off the floor and got a towel, wrapped him up and started saying that I had to go to the store to buy diapers and clothes. SO WIERD!!! Please tell me what this means.

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional relationship with your late father. The childbirth aspect of the dream could be a reflection of your memories regarding childbirth. Your behaviors in your dream are indications that you are a caring person. Ensure that your dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will honor the memory of your father. Have a great day, Stephanie!

      Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts regarding childbirth and pregnancy. Since you have a young child, your memories of her birth are likely powerful. Something in your life may have reminded you of her birth. Ensure that this dream guides you to spend additional time with your daughter in person. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Vd!

    I’m an unmarried single women of 24 yrs. I had a dream of giving birth to a baby boy without pain within very few minutes of contraction in my house with my mom nearby. Baby looks like almost a month old. I eagerly found the gender of baby born. My mom pampers the baby and gave it to my dad downstairs. He pampers the baby and we are all happy!
    I have no idea whether I’m married or single in dream. But no one is disappointed or sad over this!
    What does this relates to?

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. It is possible that you are interested in having a child at this time. You may have recently spoken with someone about children or pregnancy. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If there is someone that you want to develop a relationship with that person, then speak with that person about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Sanyuktha!
