Miscarriage and Dreams
About 20% of pregnancies result in a miscarriage or stillbirth. That’s one in five which is a considerable amount. It is a thing that frightens most pregnant women so it isn’t surprising that many expectant women have dreams of miscarriage. However, it isn’t just expectant mothers that have dreams of miscarriage. Even men can have this dream, meaning that the dream can also be symbolic.
To dream about a miscarriage can be traumatic at the worst, worrying at the least. It is something we generally don’t talk about in our waking life so even talking about a dream about a miscarriage can be difficult. However, it does need to be addressed. It is a good idea to talk to a friend or family member about the dream.
Please don’t worry too much if you are pregnant and have a dream about a miscarriage, whether it is you who is losing the baby or someone else. The dream is rarely a premonition. Instead, it is telling you something else. However, you will probably still wake up feeling sad and worried about this dream. It could be that if you are pregnant and have this dream, it is related to anxiety. Perhaps you have been worrying that you are going to have a miscarriage in waking life. If you aren’t pregnant, this dream could indicate that you want to be pregnant but are afraid of miscarrying.
A dream about miscarrying evokes many deep emotions and not all of them are associated with having a child. If you dream about someone else having a miscarriage it doesn’t mean that they will. It is symbolic of pregnancy and fertility as well as any worries you might have about having a family.
Dreams about miscarriage don’t have to have anything to do with pregnancy. They can represent an idea or project that didn’t go well, or it can signify the end of something. Perhaps it is the end of childhood, the end of your marriage, or you want to change jobs. However, you will still get a feeling of loss when you wake up, especially if you actually do have children.
Ancient dream dictionaries say that if you dream of a miscarriage, things will not go to plan. You might be sacked from a job which you thought was perfect for you. Tour dream vacation could be canceled or your partner could leave you. These dreams symbolize loss, but they can also indicate that someone is going to irritate you in your waking life.
Dreams of having a miscarriage or someone else having one can be a warning. Maybe you need to accept an opportunity you are offered and not let it slip by. For example, you might dream that you have a miscarriage at work and this could mean that if you’re not on your toes with your ear to the ground, you might get passed over for that promotion.
Dreaming that you Have a Miscarriage
If you dream that you have a miscarriage, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are going to have one. It is more of a symbolic dream than a premonition. The dream can predict that you are losing something else, for example, hope for the future or the loss of a job. Perhaps you have lost your husband to either death or divorce. Whatever has happened, you need time to come to terms with the loss. The dream could also mean that you are finishing something before it comes to a natural ending. This could easily be in a relationship situation. However, the dream isn’t always negative. It can suggest that you are going to have a new start in life. Quite often this is all we need to be happy.
Dreaming that Your Partner Has a Miscarriage
If you dream that your partner has a miscarriage, it can mean one of a mumber of things. Perhaps your subconscious is telling you that you want to have children, but haven’t been able to admit it to your partner. If you have children, it could mean that you are worried about losing them, which is perfectly natural. Another interpretation is that you are afraid of changes in responsibility. Perhaps your boss wants you to take on new tasks and you are worried that you won’t complete them to his or her satisfaction. The dream could also indicate that you are feeling a failure in some aspect of your life. It could be as simple as losing a tennis match or as complicated as divorce. Whichever interpretation you take, this dream always suggests your fear of loss.
Dreaming About a Miscarriage While Pregnant
It is not uncommon for a woman to experience a dream of miscarriage at some time during her pregnancy. Hormones are released when a woman is pregnant and these often lead to vivid, poignant, and de[ressive dreams. These dreams can be lucid and some women have even said that the dreams seem like they are real. However, they aren’t real, and while frightening, dreaming of a miscarriage while pregnant doesn’t mean that it’s going to come true. These dreams are usually caused by worry that you are going to lose the baby or that you are going to be a bad mother.
Dreaming about miscarriage when you are pregnant is symbolic rather than a prediction. It symbolizes loss and this could be the loss of a partner or of a job, not a child.
However, having said this, it is a good idea to make sure you are taking care of yourself. This should help to keep your anxiety low. Go to your doctor for helpful advice, rest more, and avoid busy places (see also places dream symbols) like shopping centers.
If you dream about blood and pain, it can be distressing and can feel real when you wake up. However, take a few moments to realize that this is not really happening. This should help you to calm down.
Dreaming of a Pregnant Woman who Has a Miscarriage
It can be confusing to dream of someone else having a miscarriage, especially if you don’t know this person. However, again the dream doesn’t have to be literal. It’s highly unlikely that you will see anyone having a miscarriage. The dream is symbolic, but it’s not good news. It can represent defeat in some aspect of your life or being blocked. Perhaps a group of your friends doesn’t want you to be part of them anymore or maybe your ideas at work are being disregarded.
Dreaming of Your Partner Having a Miscarriage
It is common for partners to dream about a miscarriage. It can be an unsettling dream particularly if you are excited about the new arrival. You might, however, have this dream for a different reason than losing the baby. To have a child is a big responsibility and maybe you are feeling a little afraid about the new addition to the family, particularly if this is your first child. Perhaps there is a little part of you that really doesn’t feel ready to be a parent.
You could have a dream that your partner has a miscarriage but you’re not bothered. This doesn’t mean that you are a bad person, but more that you are afraid of the responsibility a baby brings with it. You will, however, probably wake up feeling guilty and may decide that it’s time to pamper your partner.
If neither you nor your partner is pregnant, but you experience a dream about miscarriage, it can mean the loss of something important to you both. This could be anything from the loss of an important person, the loss of trust, or maybe you have lost the opportunity to progress in your life. It could also mean that a romantic relationship is going to end.
Dreaming that your partner is having a miscarriage may leave you lost, but you again have to realize that this dream isn’t necessarily going to come true.
However, this dream isn’t entirely negative. It can suggest that hardships are going to come to an end and that you are going to be offered the opportunity of a new start.
Dreaming About Stillbirth
Dreaming about stillbirth is just as traumatic as dreaming about miscarriage. Both can be thought of as nightmares, perhaps a stillbirth even more so as you can hold your dead baby. which is naturally distressing. Because the reason for a stillbirth is rarely known, the dream can be very painful. It could represent the grief you are suffering in life. Perhaps a close family member has died.
On a simpler level, the dream could be a warning that change is coming. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the change is going to be bad, but you still need to prepare for something new in your life.
The Significance of Miscarriage in a Hospital in Dreams
If you aren’t pregnant, but you see yourself bleeding and having a miscarriage in hospital, it can be a strange dream to have. There are three symbols in this dream. The first symbol is a pregnancy which can be either positive or negative. Perhaps you are excited about having a baby or maybe it wasn’t planned and is not wanted at this time in your life. The second symbol is the hospital, which is positive. A hospital is where you are cared for and looked after. However, the third symbol is the miscarriage and this indicates anxiety and sadness. On the other hand, the dream is more positive than negative and can suggest that you are expecting good news.
The Connection Between a Miscarriage Dream and Waking Life
Each dream that we have has some connection with our waking life even though we might not realize it at first. Usually, dreaming about miscarriage suggests loss of some ing, not just of a child. You are going to lose something major as a job or a partner, or it may not be as big. Maybe you’ll lose a friend who has been talking about you behind your back. That isn’t a great loss, even though the betrayal will affect you. The dream represents any fear that you are feeling, but the outcome may be better than you expect. If you lose a job, for example, you might get a better one. In reality, the dream will help you to prepare for the outcome. If you are lucky, you won’t come across any setbacks, but if you do, you will be prepared for them. There is literally not a lot you can do to change the outcome, so leave life to destiny.
Dreaming of Having a Miscarriage in a Vehicle
You might have a dream where you have a miscarriage in a train, bus, tram, airplane, or car. This is not a negative dream. It indicates that you want to move on with life. Perhaps you feel as if your relationship is going nowhere or that you are in a dead-end job. Maybe you can’t relate to your circle of friends anymore. Perhaps you have outgrown them. You want to achieve your goals, but you have to put some things and some people behind you. You do, however, need to do this slowly so that you don’t fail in your new path in life.
Alternatively, dreaming that you are having a miscarriage in a vehicle can mean that you want to get away if only for a vacation.
Dreaming of Having a Miscarriage in Hospital
It isn’t a good sign if you dream that you have a miscarriage in hospital. If you are expecting a baby (see also Dreaming Of Babies), the dream is telling you that you have been neglecting your health and now that you are pregnant, it is essential that you take care of yourself. Perhaps you should make an appointment for a checkup with a doctor.
This dream can also be a symbol and you don’t need to be pregnant in your waking life to experience it. Perhaps you have too much work to do in the office or at home and this is making you anxious. You feel as if you’re not going to achieve deadlines because you have too much going on. It is time that you took a vacation to recharge your batteries. Even a night out with friends would help. You need to reduce stress so that you don’t burn yourself out. Your health is always a priority.
Dreaming of Having a Miscarriage at Home
If you dream that you have a miscarriage in your own home, something is not right at home. Maybe you have fallen out with your partner or another family member. This disagreement could be affecting the whole family and you are feeling stressed out. The dream is telling you that it is time to discuss the problems you have with this person and try to work them out. This will make life at home much easier.
Dreaming of Having a Miscarriage on the Street
To dream that you have a miscarriage on the sidewalk is not a positive dream. It suggests that you are being pushed too hard at work to the extent that you don’t know if you can carry on in the position.. You are expecting to fail and become the laughing stock of your firm. The dream could also mean that you are the target of gossip. Perhaps it’s time to take a step back from center stage. You don’t want people to notice you for the wrong reasons. Don’t make too many jokes or tell everyone how good you are at your job. It is important to stay humble so as to stop others from becoming envious and in the end, disliking you.
Dreaming About Having Repetitive Miscarriages
It is unusual to dream about having more than one miscarriage in the same dream. If you do, it can mean that you are afraid of failing. It is more common to have this dream if you have had several failures in your life. Because you have failed, you are nervous about taking another risk. However, the dream is telling you that it is time to try again. You can’t hide behind your failures for the rest of your life and you need to take a chance. Perhaps you started a new career and couldn’t make it work. Try something else. Maybe you started a business, but it failed. Yes, your confidence will have taken a knock, but if you don’t try again, you won’t be able to move forward. You will just be stuck in the past which will do you no good whatsoever. Try to overcome your fears.
Dreaming About Having a Miscarriage if You are a Man
Of course, men can’t get pregnant, but try telling that to your subconscious mind. It is entirely possible for a man to dream that he is expecting and also that he is having a miscarriage. It can be a worrying dream and it is a warning that something won’t go to plan. Maybe your vacation has been canceled at the last minute. Perhaps your fiance will call off your wedding a few days before the ceremony. Maybe you aren’t going to get the promotion you were expecting.
On the other hand, if you dream that your partner or daughter has a miscarriage, it is a positive sign. It brings out the love you feel for this person. You might have been taking this person for granted and this dream is telling you to put more effort into the relationship. The woman dreamed about is special to you and you need to show her this. You need to give back the love you are getting from her.
Dreaming About a Miscarriage While you are Alone
In ancient dream dictionaries, to have a miscarriage while you are alone means that you are a loner. You are quite happy spending time on your own and you don’t need other people to fulfill you.
However, this dream can also have other interpretations. If you are pregnant, it can be quite literal. Maybe you are afraid of having a miscarriage full stop, but you could also feel as if you are alone without anyone to comfort you.
Alternatively, this dream can also suggest that you are afraid of being betrayed by someone. Perhaps you are worried that the father of your child is going to leave you and you will have to bring up the baby on your own.
However, the dream is also telling you not to worry about the future. Live in the present and look forward to the future. It won’t do your health any good to keep worrying.
Dreaming About Having a Miscarriage which Doesn’t Hurt
Surprisingly, it isn’t a good sign if you dream that you are having a painless miscarriage. It can mean that you are having romantic problems. There is friction and you are going to face serious disagreements with the person closest to you. It won’t be easy for you to agree on anything. This is accentuated if you are pregnant in your waking life and your partner doesn’t want to be a father yet. You could try taking a short vacation together to attempt to reignite your relationship.
Alternatively, this dream suggests that it is the wrong time to make a decision. If you have to, take your time before deciding what action to take.
Dreaming About an Early Miscarriage
If you dream that you lose your baby in the second trimester, it can be positive. You could have new ideas in the near future. Alternatively, perhaps you would like to take a vacation to an exotic location, or maybe you would like to start up your own business.
On the other hand, if you have experienced a miscarriage in your waking life, the dream symbolizes fear, worries, and concerns. Perhaps you want to get pregnant again, but are afraid that you will have a miscarriage again.
Dreaming About Seeing Heavy Bleeding and Blood Clots
To dream that you or someone else bleeds while having a miscarriage means a loss of power. Perhaps you are going to be demoted at work. Maybe you are simply tired of all the pressures life brings. You could be emotionally drained. Perhaps you are having a tough time with your partner and this is taking a toll on your health. If you are passing a blood clot, something that has happened recently has exhausted you and you need a vacation.
To see that you have a blood clot can have a couple of different meanings. Perhaps you are faced with a difficult decision in your waking life and are unable to decide what to do. You could feel a loss of power. Maybe your children are growing up and are wanting to do their own thing and you feel unable to control this situation. A blood clot can also suggest disappointment. You could be disappointed in yourself for not getting that promotion.
Seeing yourself bleed in a dream can indicate that you are in a fight with a friend or a family member. The dream is telling you that you should try and put this confrontation to rest. It isn’t good for your health to feel stressed all the time. If you can’t see where the blood is coming from it means that you are confused. Change has happened in your life and you don’t like it.
On the other hand, if you dream that you are able to stop the blood, it is a positive sign. You are filled with energy and enthusiasm and anything you tackle now has a good chance of success.
Dreaming of your Sister Having a Miscarriage
Ancient dream dictionaries have their own interpretation of this dream, If you see your sister having a miscarriage, it really has nothing to do with her. It is all to do with your health, especially if your sister has a miscarriage in the dream, but she is not pregnant in waking life. It is a warning to take more care of yourself. Perhaps you have been burning the candle at both ends which has exhausted you/ Maybe you have been reckless and careless. Perhaps you should go and see your doctor and get a full medical check. You need to stop this downward slope into ill health and despair.
Modern interpretations of this dream are connected to your sister. If you see her having a miscarriage in your dream it can mean that she is going to go through major changes in her life. Perhaps she is getting married and will be starting a new chapter in her life.
Dreaming That You Can’t Cope with a Miscarriage
You could have a dream where you see yourself having a miscarriage and then being unable to cope with the emotions this brings. This is not a surprising dream as it is very traumatic to have a miscarriage. If you find yourself in this position in your dream, you are going to experience great changes in the near future. It may be that you won’t be able to accept these changes but are powerless to stop them from happening. However, don’t completely despair. These changes aren’t always negative. Sometimes they are a breath of fresh air. Whichever it is, however, the changes will have a big impact on you. The dream is telling you to be prepared for what life throws at you. Perhaps you hate change, but you have to accept that it is part of life. You have to try and be a stronger person. If you feel unable to make big changes, start small. You have to move on in life as nothing stays the same however much you want it to.
Having a Nightmare About a Miscarriage
It could be said that most dreams about miscarriages are nightmares especially if you are pregnant. The nightmare can be terrifying and you will probably wake up in a cold sweat.
If you aren’t pregnant, the dream can still be horrifying and it means that you are going to go through some pain in your waking life. Perhaps there was something preying on your mind when you went to sleep.
Dreaming About Violence and a Miscarriage
If you dream about both a violent act and a miscarriage, it can be doubly worrying and terrifying. Perhaps you were physically attacked in your dream and this led to a miscarriage. This can mean that something won’t go to plan. Perhaps you are supposed to be getting married. Maybe you were planning to change jobs. Perhaps you have big ideas and want to start your own business. The violence you dream about represents the area of your life that will not turn out well. Maybe these plans will work out okay in the beginning, but not in the long term. It is time to sit down and consider whether it is worth starting something that you may not be able to finish.
If you have been a victim of violence in your waking life, it wouldn’t be surprising if you have this dream. The dream is a post-traumatic stress disorder nightmare. If you haven’t been attacked in your waking life, it is a good idea to examine your life and see what is causing you pain. It could be that you are in emotional pain, rather than in physical.
If you are the one acting violently in the dream and causing a miscarriage, you could be suffering from anxiety in your waking life. You will probably wake up feeling guilty. Perhaps you haven’t been as nice to someone as you could have been
Dreaming About a Miscarriage of Justice
Now let’s look at something a little different; a dream about a miscarriage of justice. If we dream about this, it usually means that you have a problem in your waking life. Sometimes it could be something that you haven’t considered a problem, but this dream tells you that there is something to consider for your future well-being.
In our waking life, it’s not uncommon to read or hear about miscarriages of justice. Sometimes people are put in jail for s crime that they didn’t commit. Sigmund Freud, the famous psychologist, believed that our dreams are symbolic. He thought that if you have a dream of being falsely accused of committing a crime, it means that in your waking life somebody will blame you for something that you didn’t do. You will be judged unjustly and you must prepare to stand up for yourself.
If you dream that you are being falsely accused of murder, it can mean that you hide your emotions too much. It is time to open up to other people. There are plenty of people who would be willing to help.

- You see someone having a miscarriage. This can either be someone you don’t know or a person that is a friend or a member of your family.

Dreaming About Recovering From a Miscarriage

Fear, unhappiness, worry, sadness, helplessness, neediness, thankfulness, relief.
