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.

Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take whichever action you feel is appropriate. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Simona!

    I’ve had multiple dreams (not in a row) about giving birth. In real life, I am a 18-teenager and a virgin, but i’ve had a boyfriend for a few years. I’ve had baby fever since I could understand what a baby was, and I’ve always wanted children and my life goal is to be a mother. However, even though I would love a baby right now, I want to wait until I am financially secure in life and at least 26. In my dream, 2/3 of my pregnancy I had a tiny belly that was barely noticeable, then the last trimester it grew giant (not for any particular reason though). Then when I gave birth, there were rainbow toy beads all over the floor, and I gave birth to a girl in a short labor, and everyone was very happy (there was also a whole bunch of other women giving birth in the same room??). There was also a detail where I wanted to name our daughter something that we had not already picked out, and a scene of picking out the clothes she would wear home from the hospital. What do all the details mean?

      You are making a wise decision to wait to have children. This will be better for your child and for your relationship with your partner. Continue to share your kindness and compassion at all times. When you are interested in having a child, then speak with your partner at that time. The clothes and names may be a sign that you are thinking about what you want for your future. Have a great day, Tika!

    Last night I dreamt that I was needing to go to the toilet. After much discomfort I realised I was unknowingly pregnant and suddenly gave birth right there in the bathroom. Even pulling the baby out myself at one point and being in shock. I am not pregnant in reality

      Dreams about contractions and pregnancy are indications that your thoughts are related to childbirth. If you are pregnant, then that may have caused this dream to manifest. If not, then it is possible that you have recently had a discussion regarding pregnancy or children.

      The dream seems to show a coming change or transformation in your life. It may be a larger change than you ever expected however because of the number of children who are born in the dream. Prepare for new developments and be willing to embrace the changes that arrive in your life! Good luck, Andrea!

    I am single, but I dreamt that I was in labour through c-section.
    I cannot really remember the gender but should be a girl. She was healthy and I was feeding her with a milk bottle.
    All my family members was happy!

    Read some of the meaning of being single and getting into labour is a bad omen. was quite affected by it:(

      Birth is often a sign of a transformation. Since everyone was happy in your dream, it seems like you have some kind of change approaching that will be positive for you or for your loved ones. Considering how happy everyone in the dream was, I feel like it is unlikely that your dream meant anything negative or ominous.

    I do not have kids of my own but my boyfriend has 2 (boy and girl) 6&7. My first dream I was pregnant and all 4 of us were walking down the street, his son crawled into a sewer drain and we followed (I was pregnant) at the end of the drain, we found his son and a hospital room where I gave birth. 2 weeks later I have a dream that I am expecting a boy and I am telling. Friend of mine to feel my belly because you can feel the outline of his ear and in my dream I vividly remember feeling an outline of an ear. My friend felt my belly but had long fingernails and cut my belly by accident and his ear stuck out of my stomach. I pulled him out almost like a makeshift c-section and the baby was completely healthy…any interpretation??

      Your two dreams are reflections of various influences in your life. Pregnancy may be a manifestation of your memories or discussions in relation to pregnancy. Mice and biting may be a sign of fears or concerns that you may have in your life. 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 into your life. Have a great day, Natalie!

    Last night I had a dream that I birthed / pulled out a baby boy and the planeta he wasn’t newborn looking though almost 2 months old already. I panicked for this a little in the dream thinking I needed to get urgent attention. Currently not pregnant, I have an 8 month old boy who’s very happy. The only thing I realise the connection to another baby dream (2nd one) is with my partner (now ex) both of us were little stressed in dream but everything was ok. There was some joy I remember feeling and the way this baby looked was little like my friends baby too.

    I guess the last dream was shortly before separation where I remember my now baby being small for some reason and being left somewhere odd that he had hurt himself (quite traumatic to wake to) and I made sure all was ok, then my ex/partner and I were in the shower helping him together. Although, to my right I noticed a piece of garlic when I woke I felt unsettled by this and that whole dream.

    I’d love to know anything re the first one I mentioned above, I almost felt too I went searching for my own son in dream – came across a red head man who had his partner and baby. He looked at me but couldn’t recognise me although I recognised him (we both have red hair)

      Your dream may be a reflection of your knowledge of the recent birth of your child. It is possible that you have spoken with someone about pregnancy or childbirth. The garlic may be a reflection of something in your life. Many people have aversions to strong odors while pregnant, and this dream could be a manifestation of your thoughts during pregnancy. 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, Bri!

    I had a dream last night that I was in labor. My mother was helping me deliver. The whole time, I was scared that the baby would’t survive, I was scared to push but my other said “you have to push”. I wanted to be alone fearing the worst. I felt that I had to poop and went to the bathroom and as I pushed, the baby came. The baby scratched his eye, he had a scratch, but he was perfect and alive. I’ve had 2 2nd trimester miscarriages and soon after the 2nd one, I learned I had a brain tumor that prevented pregnancy. I am now okay and clear to have children but I am married to a man who had a vasectomy. He promised to reverse it when we got married but changed his mind when it came to actually doing it. I’ve felt betrayed since then and have considered ending the marriage. I can’t help but wonder what this dream means with all that is going on.

      Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts regarding pregnancy. You want to have children, and your partner lied to you. This is a clear indication that he does not respect your relationship. This means you should take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings. You need to make a decision about what is appropriate and viable. Have a great day, Sianiu!

    2 nights ago I had a very vivid dream. I was in a hospital bed with a huge belly and I was pushing, giving birth. My boyfriend was holding my hand while I was in labor pain and the only other 2 people there were a doctor and a nurse.I’m currently not pregnant. What did this very vivid dream mean?
