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.

      This dream is a reflection of your close connection with your current partner. You likely feel as though you want to strengthen this relationship. It is possible that you have been thinking about pregnancy or children. Determine what you want for your future, and speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Ririri!

      Your dream may be a reflection of your knowledge that you feel jealously. However, your decision to behave negatively in your dream may be a reflection of your desires. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Ensure that you only share your kindness and compassion. This will help manifest positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Shai!

    I had a dream last night that I was at an amusement park. When I went to the bathroom I looked down and had a small baby bump. I didn’t know I was pregnant before. I looked in the toilet and realized I had gave birth. In real life I’m married and have three kids. This was super weird for me to have a dream like this

    Hello! Well, I had a dream that I had given birth to two boys but I didn’t know until birth. I seemed pretty happy in the dream and that my ex & I were happy together. I don’t remember much about the dream but lately I’ve been having many odd dreams & when I look up what they mean, they usually relate to something that’s happening in my life right now. I guess I’m just trying to find an answer and make sense of what might happen in my future. Thank you!

    I also forgot to mention that I “napped” during the dream and saw a vision of my daughter grown up, and she turned out to be a very bubbly and unique character, very sure of herself. I just knew she was the baby in the future. I felt very proud to have raised such a polite but confident girl. I don’t know if that changes the dream interpretation but yeah.

    I had a dream that I went into labor without knowing I was pregnant. I had the baby at the hospital and we were trying to figure out what to do. In the dream, my husband kept trying to put the baby under the mattress for some reason, and I had to protect her from him, because even though he meant well, he was endangering her. Both he and the baby caused me great stress. She pooped all over herself and we only had one diaper from the hospital and I sent him to the store to get her diapers. I was giving her a bath with my mother in law, who kept demanding “why didn’t you tell me you were pregnant? You guys are not ready for a child” and I kept saying “I didn’t know, I didn’t know.” I woke up relieved that there was no poopy baby in my arms, remembering how challenging children can be. I want children but now I’m sure I want to wait. That dream was a dose of reality. It felt real

      Your dream is a reflection of your emotional relationship with your niece. It is possible that your romantic relationships may be strained. You may be thinking about pregnancy. You may know that someone else is pregnant. Allow this dream to guide you to spend additional time with your family members. This will help bring many benefits into your life.

    I had a dream I was in labor and had just arrived at a hospital to give birth. My belly was huge. I remember not being in any pain but I was adamant to not have a Ceaseran again as I had in real life with my only son. I remember telling the doctor I was not going to do it the same as the last time I gave birth.

    I had a dream that I didn’t know I was pregnant but gave birth to a 7lb 4 ounce baby boy. He was gorgeous! But he didn’t have an umbilical cord, it was attached to my belly button. He didn’t cry. It felt so real. I could smell him and send every part of him. Unlike other dreams I couldn’t see a face.

    I dreamt a baby experiencing abdominal pain so someone bought the child to me to help. I asked her if her stomach is hurting and she said yes, then she started pushing, I looked down to see a baby head emerging from the baby’s Vagina. So I helped to prevent an explosive delivery and there is was a healthy baby delivered from a baby. What does this mean?

    I had a dream that I was in the shower and I could feel my baby about to come out. I got out the shower and put on some clothes but for some reason I was contemplating on if I should put on a bra or not, but I was doing all this while trying to hold my baby in so it wouldn’t just come out, but I decided just to go on and put on a shirt and skirt an go on. I told my mom I needed to go to the hospital and she asked why but I didn’t wanna tell her that my baby was coming because her boyfriend was in the room and he makes me uncomfortable but I was also scared because I didn’t know how we were gonna get to the hospital(we don’t have a car) but thats where everything ended. I don’t know if this means something or it was just some crazy dream but.. Whats your thoughts? Note I’m a 15 year old virgin

    I dreamed about seeing somebody give birth first and kinda witnessed the cutting of the umbilical cord. I dont remember being pregnant but after that,i gave birth to a child and i also remember them cutting my umbilical cord. There was my mother, a cousin, and my aunt with me helping with the delivery. The baby was a happy one(never cried). After wrapping it up, my cousin gave me the baby and i loved it so much(don’t know the gender). It looked caucasian(i am asian). I speak to the baby and the baby kinda responded. I was surprised at that and almost told the others but did not. It also kissed me several times.
    Then i felt thirsty and went with my mother to fetch water from a stream to drink. I see a big stream with water flowing and we were trying to fetch water right where the stream kinda originated to make sure it’s pure. The road was difficult and mountainous. There were many people waiting in line and we had to wait for a long time. Finally when it’s our turn, the water already kinda got dirty. It was like a spring(water came out from the ground in different places close together) and my mother waited for it to clear.
    I do not exactly remember the specifics but i also remember returning through that same route and having to go back to the stream once more(for reasons i can’t remember). Also at the well, a lady(a poor widow in my neighborhood in real life) said she liked how green the colour of my top was. I looked down and see a neon green top i was wearing. Also, my mother was rude and annoyed at me throughout my entire dream.

    I don’t remember drinking any water. But once i’m back to the house, we were sitting at a dining table and i asked my cousin to bring me my baby. I was missing the baby so much the whole time. But she told me that the father(to whom i was not married) came and took the baby to show it to his family. I was so sad and angry. Somehow,i felt like i was never gonna see my baby again.

    Can anybody please explain to me what my dream is about? In real life, I am a single 21 year old girl and never thought of having a baby anytime soon.

    I have been struggling with unemployment for nearly 2 years. As I got married and moved countries and am turning 31,I’ve recently been extremely worried about my ability to have a career and then a baby by a reasonable age. Alternatively, I’ve also imagined if I should move back to my home country alone. Last night I had a dream that I gave birth to a baby girl who I was rather unprepared for but I managed her well. I was alone in a hospital (my husband or doctors weren’t even around). The baby in my dreams was a happy one and very responsive. I am trying to make sense out of it as I’m really trying to find answers to my life spiritually. Thank you

    I had a dream I gave birth to a beautiful baby . But I did not know I was pregnant until birth. I was not prepared I had no baby items and was not taking care of my body during pregnancy and I also did not know who the father was. I had her with only my sister in the room and she was gorgeous. Had big blue eyes which does not run in my family so I found that interesting. I remember feeling worried when I brought her home I had no crib no stroller but I started buying items and then through a paternity test found out her father was my first boyfriend.. even more weird . She grew up to be a beautiful young women and I just remember feeling so proud and almost honored to be her mother.

      This is a positive dream. Your dream is a reflection of your thoughts and feelings regarding pregnancy. Even in times of stress, you choose to focus on your child. The uncertainty between your relationships in your dream may be manifestations of the knowledge that relationships change without children and no one is entirely prepared.
