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 that I was on a table, there was a doctor and another person present. And I was about to have a baby. The doctor told me to pee so the baby would come out. I felt no pain at all but I was upset about giving birth because we hadn’t had the reveal party for the baby yet. The doctor said push I ask how she said pee so I did and the baby came out and I quickly ask “what is it” the doctor out the baby in my arms and as I saw the gender the doctor said smiling it’s a boy I said “aww, but I wanted a girl” the baby was laid in my arms unwrapped in a blanket and he was a chuncky baby and I could clearly see it was a boy.

      This dream is a reflection of your previous emotional connection with your ex. The birth could be a reflection of your knowledge of change. Ensure that this dream guides you in a positive direction. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. If you are no longer maintaining a friendship with this person, then allow thought of him to fade. Have a great day, Chulu!

    Please answer this,I had a dream where I was in a monoracial relationship where I was busy witnessing my partner(note that the person who is my partner in the dream I do not recognize from real life)giving birth(I am male),at first I am overwhelmed with joy but it sion turns to shock as could not distinguish the child born was of a different ethnicity, i didn’t pay attention to the gender of the child, in the dream I preceded to ask my partner the following “tell me the truth are you of a different ethnicity,it doesn’t Matter if you are. I just need to know”, my thoughts at that moment in the dream is confirming my partner to be of a different or mixed ethnicity as to make sense of my child’s identity. My partner then answers she is of the same ethnicity as I. After that I leave the delivery room feeling stressed,sad,confused and eventually paranoid,I then start to imagine my partner cheating on me (leading to the “pregnancy”)with another male of a different ethnicity. It deeply upsets and saddens me at the thought of my partner possibly being unfaithful and lying about the the child being mine. That is where the dream ends.

    I had a dream I was watching someone give birth. Their babies were in the water sack on their belly. They would say to me it’s new you can see your baby.i watch them give birth 2 or 3 people. Then I give birth and my baby is gone. I cry and cry as I ask my husband for my baby and no one says anything they just look at me and smile. Then all of a sudden people start giving me kids and babies. Emotionally exhausting dream.

    In my dream I dreamt of my mother giving birth to a baby girl. When I saw the baby I was crying because in real life I wanted another sibling specifically a girl. In my dream my family were there too, but didn’t not pay much attention which was odd.

      Birth is often a dream of your knowledge of change. You are not happy in your current relationship and will be signing your divorce papers. It seems that the two of you have already made a decision about this relationship. While you continue to maintain this relationship, ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with the child. It is important that the child in your life is cared for as much as possible, regardless of the stress that is in your life at this time. Have a great day, Ashwini!

    Last night I dreamt that another friend and myself were in public and suddenly in full labor. We both were pushing out a baby, we are not pregnant in real life. I look down and I can see the baby head coming out but I wasn’t in any pains whatsoever, but it took a couple of good pushes and the whole baby came out bloody and silent. I got a little worried that the baby was not crying but after rubbing it’s back the baby began crying. I can’t remember where the baby went after that but I got up and began walking towards a store to make a purchase. I was walking very slowly and my stomach looked like someone who has recently delivered a baby though I wasn’t in any pain this entire time. In my dream I felt a sense of contentment that I delivered safely and the baby was healthy.

    Me and this guy are on bad terms, but the night before, I’ve had a dream that he will contact me by phone and I got happy to see his name on my phone , and out of nowhere, we were watching tv and I thought to myself, “I’m so glad I gave it more time!” Now, in this dream I had last nite, I was in the hospital and I was in labor and the same guy was my husband in the dream, and he stood beside me as I gave birth to twins. I hardly felt pain, but I was very scared of the pain beforehand. I am not pregnant and I don’t want kids.

    I had this dream, where I was siting in the waiting area of a hospital, I had this feeling that the baby is coming as I reached down I could feel the head, and the next moment the baby was born. I told my Mom (mom -past away last year)
    to go and call a nurse. As she left I saw i was holding a baby girl.
    I had no pain got up and walked to the other room.
    I’m not pregnant.

      The pregnancy most likely shows an approaching change or transformation in your life. The fact that your mother is there in the dream most likely shows that you wish that she could be there with you as you try to navigate all of these changes and transformations in your waking life.

      Pregnancy and giving birth dreams are often a sign of a transformation or a change in your life. The fact that your husband pushed the head back in and it never reemerged seems to indicate that you or your husband (or both) is not ready for this upcoming change.

      If someone else is having the baby and delivering it, it may mean that you are watching the world around you go through great, positive changes without experiencing any of them for yourself. The recent divorce may be part of the reason why your subconscious feels this way. Thankfully, dreams only reflect your subconscious mental state, so it is entirely possible that positive changes are in your future–you just have to go after them!
