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.

You may have spoken with someone who is pregnant or who has recently given birth. Determine what you want for your future, and take appropriate action.

      Your dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. Your emotional relationship with your mother may have appeared in this dream. It is possible that she is unhealthy. The child could be an aspect of your desires regarding children. The fact that the child belonged to someone else could be a sign that you are aware of surrogacy. Ensure that your dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Shivani!

    Had a dream where I was pregnant, and gave birth to a girl, I was only in labor for an hour, and no pain. I remember I wanted to keep the umbilical cord attached for a bit while I held her. Then I remember holding her and freaking out about the bill, it was 15k. After I went home she kept shrinking, not like looking malnurished but litterly shrinking.
    I’m recently single, female, and don’t have children. What could this dream mean?

      Your dream could be a reflection of your thoughts regarding children and pregnancy. The shrinking of the child could be a sign that you are aware that your opportunities to have children diminish overtime. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If there is someone that you want to nourish a relationship with, then do so. If you do or do not want children, then ensure that you take appropriate actions in the future. Have a great day, Cory!

    In my dream I was in a hospital bed with someone from my past laying next to me holding my hand, the nurse/doc told me we’re gonna have to do a csection so they put this thing around my stomach n said it’s to help make me have contractions. I look at the guy holding my hand and he says it’s ok… next thing I know I get up n start walking I talked to someone but don’t remember that part, next thing I know I started having contractions n blacked out on the floor when I woke up I was told I had a baby boy and I was told someone else close to me also had a baby boy I don’t remember who it was but our babies were related. Also remember tell my sister in the dream and she was happy for me which is unusual for her.

    I had one of the most intense dreams last night where I was with a man I love walking through a rainy city at night, while very pregnant. It was time to give birth so we ran into a house across the street where a couple of older women helped me deliver the child and it felt like the biggest RELEASE i’ve ever experienced, and i saw the child and held him in my arms and felt a strong sense of knowing as we stared at each other. I feel much lighter today, but also wondering if this was my future child? so beautiful !! can’t stop thinkin about it!

    I just dreamt of being pregnant for the past couple of days. I was just pregnant and happy. Now, I dreamt of being pregnant again. However, my bag of water broke and I saw my baby on the flower. The baby was soo small but alive. So my father and sister rushed to the hospital. My baby was fine from the beginning but my baby died the next morning. The Nurses were saying that my baby’s foot was detached and they can’t do anthing about it. I can’t believe what happened because My baby was alive when rushed to the hospital. I was angry and blaming the nurses for negligence. What does it mean? I’m really confused. I’m single and not pregnant.

    I dreamt that I gave birth but with difficulty but after that I was happy and relieved. The other time I was dreaming that I gave birth to a baby boy with no ears. Many a times I see some animal chasing me in my dream and this is the most common dream of mine. Or I see my dear ones death and I cry alot in my dream. Can I know what all these mean?

      Dreams about giving birth are often manifestations of your desires and influences. It is possible that you have spoken with someone about pregnancy or childbirth. The lack of ears could be a reflection of your relationship with someone else in your life. If you are chased in a future dream, then address whoever or whatever is chasing you. This will reduce similar dreams from appearing in the future. Have a great day, Sravani!

    I had a very vivid dream that I was giving birth early. I didn’t make it to the delivery floor. A lady nurse was helping me. I could feel the baby coming out as I stood against the wall and pushed. I delivered a healthy boy. I’ve never had a dream this vivid, I could feel the contractions and the urge to push as if it was real.

    I had a dream that I was giving birth, umbilical cord was already out, I remember pulling it slightly but got worried about baby, then I decided to help open my area with my fingers so baby could come out easily, I remember the feeling of the baby’s face and pushing, it was very vivid I had no pain, just the feeling of pushing, baby came out successfully and I remember water and mucus splattered as baby came out and I put him on top of me, then I woke up. What could this mean?

    I’m currently 6 months pregnant and last night I dreamt that my mother was giving birth. I was confused at first because she has gone through menopause but she was giving birth to my baby which I was fine with. I watched the baby come. No yelling, my mother didn’t appear to be in pain and she was excited about it. Next thing I know I’m holding this baby and she gives birth to 3 more babies and I suddenly feel very overwhelmed but happy for 3 happy healthy babies and knowing my mom was ok.
