Older Dream Interpretations of a Dream of Giving Birth:

  • If you’re a woman, and you’re lonely, it’s said that dreaming of giving birth indicates you’ll encounter malicious gossip that someone is spreading about you. Someone is jealous of you, or they feel inadequate themselves, so this rumor makes them feel better. 
  • If you’re a man, and you dream of giving birth or someone else does, this suggests you’ll go through a tough time soon, both in your social life and in your work life, but you’ll learn something valuable from this experience.
  • If your giving birth dream has nothing to do with waking life, you’ll soon experience a lot of changes in your life, which will descend at once. Spiritually, you’ll go through a period of transformation, where you’ll be a different person at the end of it. It will impact your life similarly to having a child in waking life.

The Meaning Behind Your Giving Birth Dream

In waking life, giving birth is one of those big turning points in life, and for this event to appear in your dream is a very good sign. It suggests there’s a new adventure in store for you, which will change your life completely. If you are a parent in waking life, you know how much children change your priorities. Maybe you’ve been contemplating a new hobby, or moving somewhere completely different, expanding your social circle, or you want to get a pet. This change denotes more responsibility, but also more love and meaning coming into your life, perhaps even a brand-new purpose that will shape the years to come. 

If you are expecting a baby or your partner is, this is a very common dream to have! The whole process is a challenging experience, and it won’t let up once that new human is in the world. A dream of giving birth can be an anxiety dream, maybe you’re worried how it will go, and if both mum and baby will be safe. You wonder what your child will be like, what they’ll finally look like when you’re holding them, and how such a tiny thing will be a turning point for the rest of your life.

What’s the General Meaning Behind Giving Birth in a Dream?

Dreaming of giving birth usually denotes good news in the near future, or a run of very good luck. Right now, you’re enjoying a pretty much stress-free period in life, where your health is good, and you’re financially stable. But this dream can also signify bad things for the future, if you felt especially nervous or freaked out during this dream. If you dream of finding out someone gave birth, you’ll soon be free from a troubling situation, and you’ll soon have success. If your dream was reliving your experience of having a child, you’re reflecting on how much your child means to you, and what they’ve meant for your life, or the state of your relationship now, compared to the first few days. 

If you dream of helping someone through giving birth, it reflects your good nature, and how you’ll have a lot of good things in life moving forward because of your desire to help others. If you dream of celebrating a birth, you’ll be stress-free for a time. If the birth went well in your dream, you’ll enjoy a lot of happiness in the new future. If you see a birth certificate in your dream, or you dream of going to get a baby registered, your life will transform, and you’ll become more creative in the future. 

Not all giving birth dreams are a good sign. If you dream of a difficult birth or even a nightmare delivery, you’ll encounter a very difficult situation, but you’ll get through it as a result of your resilience and will to push through the bad times to get to the good. If you dream of an unexpected birth, this spells bad luck for the future, and something you are hoping for won’t turn out the way you want it to. A long, drawn-out period of labor in a dream reflects troubling times ahead, but the results will be worth it. This dream also stresses the need to reach out to other people, and take time out for yourself when you need to.

If you dream of giving birth to a boy, it’s said that the future will confront you with one troubling problem after another. Giving birth to a girl in a dream suggests a peaceful period of time soon, but it’s worth reflecting how you felt in this dream to clarify its meaning. In older dream interpretation, your marital status used to determine whether a giving birth dream was good or bad (dreaming of having a baby and not being married was a very bad sign), but this is likely reflecting the ideologies of the time, rather than being a prediction of the future. 

Dreaming of an easy birth reflects your resilience in life, and foretells a lucky future where you’ll get at least most of what you’ve worked for. If you dream of someone else having a relatively stress-free birth, someone you know will enjoy a period of contentment and peace, and this dream also represents honesty, and the resolution of problems. 

Dreams of giving birth also mirrors an uncertainty about your future – you’re anxious to know how something will turn out, and there’s a possibility it will transform your life in a big way, much like having a child would. You’re in the middle of a big project or there’s a big workload in your professional life, and clearing your plate for the future is your biggest worry. You feel something hinges on your success. A dream of giving birth can suggest you need to shoulder more responsibility in your life or endeavor to help others more, or you need to make more of an effort to try new things which could change your life, if you let them. 

What does it Signify to Give Birth in a Dream As a Complete Surprise?

This is a surprisingly common dream! If you dream of giving birth but didn’t know you were pregnant, this can suggest that you’re greatly misunderstanding someone. Maybe you’ve been through a lot of difficult situations, and you feel their circumstances are easily solved, but you’re looking at them through an outsider’s perspective. We can’t always know the extent of other people’s problems, or how easy or difficult they’ll find them to deal with. 

This dream can also indicate something will take you by surprise in the future – a new opportunity, a different direction in your professional life, an unexpected relationship will come up, or a project you’ve just finished will snowball into something more. Alternatively, your subconscious is telling you that you need to focus on your goals, and now is the time to change your life, despite any misgivings you have.

This dream can suggest that you’ll enjoy more success than you think, as a result of all the effort you’re putting in. You may be impatient for things to change, but this is usually a sign change is just around the corner, waiting for you.

You may be having second thoughts about something, and you’re not sure a path you’ve taken is right for you after all. You’ll spend too much time worrying and not enough time doing. Dreaming of giving birth and your partner not being present also reflects any misgivings you might have about your partner or the relationship itself. You’re unsure if there’s a future for this relationship, or how you might change each other in the future. You’re afraid that they won’t cope with a big commitment, or you feel they’re planning something big, and you don’t deal well with commitment, and this might be true, or you’re projecting your own insecurities onto them in this dream.

You’re worried how it might affect them or even yourself in the future. Perhaps it’s not a choice they’d usually make, so you’re concerned about what might be going on in their life.

You’ll soon be at a crossroads where it seems there’s no “right” answer, but you’ll be forced to make a choice, and it will shape your future. No pressure. All you can do is the best you can. Don’t worry about anything else.

What Does a Dream of Pre-eclampsia Mean?

Dreaming of suffering from preeclampsia is an anxiety dream. You’ve been dealing with a lot of stress, and your tolerance for trouble or drama is at an all-time low. Take a breath, and a break.

What does a Dream of Giving Birth and Seeing Lots of Blood Signify?

Bleeding in a dream is symbolic of your life force, or the amount of energy you have right now. Something is draining you, and it might be time to get out of a situation before things get worse.

Evaluate how you can carry on without neglecting the other parts of your life, as an imbalance now will lead to more issues in the future, and maybe even a total burnout. Dreaming of blood (see blood dream meaning) during childbirth signifies the need to reflect carefully before you make any big decisions. The future has a lot of exciting possibilities, but you’ll also experience a lot of pressure or expectation, and it’s important to feel as though you’ve made the right choice.

What does a Miscarriage Mean in a Dream?

What a nightmare. I’m sorry you had this dream. A dream of a miscarriage suggests that something in your life will end with virtually no warning, such as a deep connection with someone or a job that you feel defines who you are. You might even see the end coming only a few minutes before, but you won’t be able to stop it. While this can be a horrible situation, it will make room for good things in the future, which otherwise wouldn’t have been able to happen.

This dream also indicates that you’ll receive some perfect news soon, and you couldn’t wish for better. 

If you dream of a midwife who is unhelpful or even argumentative or rude, this indicates that someone’s interference, although they might mean well, will hold you back in the future. There’s a fine balance between having help when you need it and someone else trying to control a situation for you.

What does a Premature Baby Mean in a Dream?

A premature baby in a dream can suggest you’re struggling to understand someone close to you. Just because you’re close, doesn’t always mean that you know them well deep down, or you’re struggling to see why they’ve made a decision, it seems out of character. Or, you’ll enjoy success at work, and may gain a promotion, but it won’t be what you really want. You might just be relieved that a difficult situation has been dealt with.

This will propel you onto an unexpected path which will lead to great things in the future. This dream can suggest you’re impatient to progress in your work life, or you’re wanting more independence than you’ve had in the past. Dreaming of a baby with a head that’s too big can also suggest you’ll meet someone important in the future with a position of power, though they may have an inflated sense of influence which could get irritating. 

Decoding Your Giving Birth Dream

Dreaming of having a baby represents a new start, or a new version of yourself that’s not quite ready for the real world yet. A baby in a dream also refers to your inner child (see also Baby Dream Meaning And Interpretation), and what you wanted out of life when you were smaller. It might be time to revisit those dreams, and see if any still apply, and then go after them. Alternatively, you have been given a new opportunity, and while you feel excited about the future, you also feel that you’re inadequate, or you don’t feel up to the challenge you’ve been given. You haven’t the first clue of where you need to start. Listen to your instincts. 

Dreaming of giving birth can reflect how you feel you’ve been acting rashly or immaturely, in a way that’s out of character for you. Or, someone you know has been acting like a child, and you’re not sure why, but it’s a source of irritation. Babies in dreams usually denote innocence or a new beginning. 

What does it Mean to Dream of Travelling to a Hospital?

Dreaming of travelling to a hospital suggests that other people will take care of you in the future, in a situation that will be pivotal, and you won’t be able to handle it alone. You may realize that help will come from an unexpected source, and someone you thought you could rely on will let you down. Dreaming of travelling to a hospital can reflect worries about your health – and if you are worried, you should seek medical help. Best case scenario, you put your mind at ease. If you’re pregnant in waking life, and you have this dream, naturally you’re worried about how things will turn out, but try not to overthink things. Enjoy the present, because you’ll soon be enjoying the future. 

What does a Baby Smiling at You Mean in a Dream?

You have a strong resilience, not because you believe nothing can touch you, but in spite of the negative things in life, and the problems that come.

What does a Crying Baby Signify in a Dream?

A crying baby in a dream suggests you’re deeply unhappy with a part of your life. Do you feel out of step with the people around you? Are you lonely? Is there a goal you haven’t fulfilled, and it’s taking up all your thoughts of the present? Do you feel empty? You already know the answers to these questions. Ignoring how you feel only makes everything worse. The good news is that a crying baby in a dream symbolizes that all your problems are fixable, and you already know this, deep down. 

Feeling stressed during a dream of a crying baby reflects how you’ve lost your drive in life, what motivates you to push forward and look towards the potential happiness in the future. Have you been overthinking things lately? This dream points to a time in the near future where you’ll take everything as it comes, one day at a time, until you can look toward your goals and what the future has in store for you. You’ll make your own equilibrium, and you’ll be able to decide what’s best for you, and how to avoid feeling purposeless in the future. If you do have a child, or you will become a parent in the near future, this dream can reflect the worry you have for them, and how you hope they’ll have a good life which is relatively turmoil-free. If you’ve been having trouble at work, this dream points to a worry of financial security, and how you’ll provide for yourself and your family if things go badly wrong.

What does it Mean to Dream of a Starving Baby?

Dreaming of a starving baby is a very worrying dream to have, but it reflects a magnitude of anxiety in waking life. Dreams of this sort are rarely to do with actual babies, they usually stem from a worry about the future and how you might or might not reach your goals. Dreaming of a starving baby can indicate you’re too dependent on the people in your life, and you don’t like your own company enough to try to do anything about it. Older dream interpretations suggest that a dream of a starving baby signifies a period of trouble in the future, where you will need to rely on other people for help and support. Knowing when to solve something yourself and when to call on other people is a tricky balance, but striking this balance will carry you forward into the future, further than you might expect.

What does it Signify to Dream of Giving Birth to a Clean Baby?

Dreaming of giving birth to a completely, miraculously clean baby indicates a new goal which will add a lot of meaning to your life. It won’t be a quick goal to reach, more likely than not it will be a life goal, but you’ll get a lot out of the journey towards fulfilling it. This dream also suggests you’ve been having a tough time lately, and focusing on something new to strive towards will be just one of the ways you’ll move toward a new balance in your life. It might be time to do some inner soul-searching. Is there something that’s causing you to think negatively? Is it something you can limit, turn on its head, or even remove it from your life? What makes you happy? How can you “turn the volume” up on that? Make tiny adjustments where you can, and you’ll soon start to feel the difference.

What does a Dream of Giving Birth to a Baby of a Different Race Suggest?

Dreaming of giving birth to a baby that’s a different race to you or your partner can cause a lot of confusion. You’ll be glad to know that this is a positive dream. It indicates you’ll go through a period of self-improvement along a spiritual journey. A dream of giving birth to a baby of a different race points to needing to keep an open mind, in order for this journey to start. You may be too set in your ways to consider something new right now. Consider trying something you’ve never done before, and these new experiences will help enrich your life and stoke your personal development. 

What does it Signify to Dream of Helping Someone Give Birth?

A dream where you help someone give birth is a good indication of new responsibilities in the future, as well as your caring nature, which will open up unexpected opportunities that will add wealth to your life. If you dreamed of a stranger giving birth, this indicates a new chapter in your life, perhaps a new relationship, or a new job, or a new project is on the horizon. If the person you helped was someone you know, you’ll either help them through a tough situation in waking life, or you’ll go to them for support in an emotional time of need.

What does it Mean to Dream of a Very Small Baby?

Dreaming of a very small baby indicates that other people will ask for your thoughts or your help soon. If you dream of a baby which fits into one hand, this dream is telling you to look after your health, and make sure you’re getting enough nutrients in your body. If you dream of a small baby which requires an incubator, you’ll encounter a problem in the future which you’ll need outside help to solve, but the results will be worth it. Spiritually, dreaming of a small baby suggests you fear of becoming dependent or being unable to solve a problem on your own, but no one person is made to be an island. We need other people. 

What does it Suggest to Dream of a Stillborn Baby?

I’m sorry you had this stressful dream. Dreaming of a stillborn baby indicates you still have  a long way to go in solving a problem, or you need to start from scratch in something. This dream can also represent your worries about coping, adapting, or feeling inadequate in life, and these negative thoughts will hold you back if you give them enough room to do so. Try to think of where these thoughts have come from, or what’s feeding them. If you can’t silence them completely – and that’s often the hardest thing – try to limit the amount of time you spend thinking negative thoughts. Make that time smaller, each time you feel you need to give into them, until it shrinks to basically nothing. You’ll get there. If you’re pregnant or your partner is expecting a child in waking life, this can be a frightening dream. It’s not an indication of the future, but of your anxiety, and how you’re hoping your baby will be healthy and safe. If you dream of birth complications, this indicates you need to make healthier diet choices, or take up more exercise and spend less time on bad habits. 

Dreaming of giving birth to a dead baby indicates something important in your life is coming to an end. It may be you’ve outgrown a perspective that’s served you until now, or, you’ve been holding too tightly onto nostalgia, and you’ll soon have to stop looking at the past and start moving forward. This dream stresses the importance of not fighting change, but adapting the best you can, and to be open to changing who you are. 

This dream is also drawing your attention to the decisions you make and the long-term effects these can have. A part of your life needs more care. You’re worried about not achieving something, or being too reliant on others. 

What does a Dream of a Demon Baby Mean?

This is an interesting one! Dreams like this can create an emotional “hangover”, where you’ll still feel the effects of the emotion within your dream for the rest of the day. You might feel anxious or jittery after a nightmare, or satisfied after a fantastic dream. No prizes for guessing how you’ll feel after this dream! Finding the meaning behind a horrible dream can help shake the emotional hold it has on you. A demon baby in your dream indicates something is holding you back. Fear is preventing you from living your best life and becoming the best version of yourself that you can be. You’re too worried to look toward the future and what it might mean, as you think you cannot handle it, or you feel you’re not up to difficult tasks. Knowing what’s coming doesn’t always make a huge difference, but it’s how you control your reactions that counts. If you’re expecting a child in waking life, this is a surprisingly common dream, though not everyone would admit it! Once you have that baby in your arms, everything will be fine! If you have children and experience a dream like this, this indicates you’re going through a bit of a rough patch, but that means that you’ll also enjoy the future once you get over the worst of what the present has to offer.
