Childbirth Dream Symbol

Childbirth Dream Symbol
When one is pregnant, there’s a baby a-brewing but if you’re in the throes of giving birth, your little one is on its way. It is common for expectant mothers to dream about giving birth, yet both men and women report dreaming about pregnancy and childbirth even when there is no waking life baby in their future. If you happen to be pregnant or a man with a pregnant wife, then childbirth dreams usually reflect subconscious concerns about the coming event. These are not necessarily prophetic dreams.

However, if you are not pregnant but dream of childbirth, this commonly refers to something in your life you are “birthing” or bringing forth in a creative sense. Just as giving birth is an act of creation, you birth ideas and projects, too.
