If you cannot find what you want in the first section, there are a lot of questions answered at the bottom of the page under Comments.

If you have given birth to a baby in a dream, it can represent a new phase of life; a new idea; new activity – as when we say someone has a new baby, meaning a new project or business. This ‘baby’ might be part of you that did not have a chance to be ‘born’ or express before. Or it may be things learned in a rich life that you could not put into practice because of circumstances. The baby in this aspect is the ‘you’ that could have been if you had been free from problems and past hurts.

In real life a baby is a blending of mother and father, and all they represent. A baby is a new thing that has been ‘born’ out of them and the circumstances they are involved in.

Example: My wife and I were walking out in the countryside. I looked around suddenly and saw my four year old son near a hole. He fell in and I raced back. The hole was narrow but very deep. I could see water at the bottom but no sign of my son. I didn’t know whether I could leap down and save him or whether it was too narrow. Then somehow he was out. His heart was just beating.

The dreamer had an argument with his wife the night before and was frightened it had killed his marriage. The baby son represented their marriage and his fear of the end of their life together, but the dream went on to show that it survived.

But the dream baby can also represent one’s own feeling urges at that level of development – such as possessiveness, joy, curiosity, responding to the world without words or formed concepts, innocent love, infant trauma; intense dependence; feelings of helplessness; vulnerability; lack of responsibility; and being cared for. Even as adults many of these early feeling responses still dominate the way we meet relationships and events. It is quiet common for instance for adults to feel intense and destructive jealousy about their sexual partner. This is exactly the sort of feeling we experienced naturally as a baby and child. Unfortunately in adulthood we seldom see such things as an emergence of baby feelings which we have not grown beyond. Instead we accept them as adult behaviour and justify them, often blaming our sexual partner for them – i.e. ‘You made me jealous by showing affection for that other man/woman’. The baby or child often feels murderous rage in connection with such dependence and jealousy, but it is too small to effectively act on the rage. When an adult feels such rage however, it is highly dangerous and irrational. See Beware of Love; victim; personal growth.

Aborted baby: In general something that was developing, a new facet of self, or a new opportunity that has now been lost or rejected. If in a pregnant woman’s dream, usually it is an expression of fears regarding ones ability to carry the child to full term – but it is wise to have a check. See: pregnancy.

Adult body with baby head: Suggests that the way one approaches life, ones thinking, is still immature, even though one is physically mature.

Adopted baby: Adopting a new stance in life, perhaps conceived by, or seen in someone else; taking on the responsibility of something or someone that needs care and help to grow; if you are trying to adopt a baby it would reflect feelings or intuitions about that activity.

Baby body with adult head: Suggests that while one has developed an adult intellect and rational thinking, or an adult self, aspects of ones feelings, hungers and sexuality remain at the baby level of development.

Baby Boy: If you have given birth to a baby boy, it is usually about the principle of maleness entering your life. Maleness is like the sun, it expresses most of its energy outwardly to give life. Whereas the female is like the earth, receiving and nurturing life.

Birth or emergence of a new phase of self expression in terms of activity or achievement. In a males dream may suggest a new self emerging, or new aspect of self.

Baby Girl: If you have given birth to a baby girl, it is usually about the principle of femininity. Femininity is about having the power of creating life within and nurturing its growth.

Baby Dying: The anxiety dreams include such images as giving birth to a baby who is only a few ounces in weight – the baby is malformed – the baby is born dead – the baby is blind or deaf or injured.

Castle was able to follow the dreams of over 200 pregnant women, often from about the time of conception through to their post natal situation and experience. One of his interests was to see if dreams showed signs of information about physical conditions that were not apparent at the time of the dream. He says that many dreams did in fact show that small shifts in the physical state, such as conception, were shown in appropriate symbols in the dreams of some women. So if you have a worrying dream about your baby it is worth making sure you check out its condition, something that with modern equipment is easily done. To quote Castle, “The unconscious mind of the pregnant woman seems able to monitor and detect biochemical imbalances, tissue abnormalities, or structural defects in the uterine environment and communicate an awareness of disturbed functioning through dream imagery, which is sometimes fairly literal, sometimes symbolic.”

Seeing a baby die in a dream can suggest many things. It can suggest that the most vulnerable part of you has been killed by your hidden emotions. Also I have received, over 40 years, many dreams of mothers who dreamt their baby or child was dead, and not one of them died. One woman who explored such a dream with me found that a death had taken place, represented by the child, and the death was that of her love for a man. She had ended a relationship that had lasted for years.

Dead baby: Dreaming that your child dies can have several meanings. In some dreams a parent, much to their horror dreams of killing their child. But our dream 

child can represent many things, and it is useful to realise that any person, object or scene in a dream is not a symbol – it is not dead thing that has to be interpreted – it is a living part of you and can only be understood by relating to it.

So in this way I have found that a child can represent whatever our strongest feelings about them are. It can represent your marriage or partnership because it is what you have created between you. In that case the death of the child can depict something like an awful argument that feels as if it the marriage has died.

A child and its death can also show you how you have killed out the growing or adventurous side of you; or if you see your child as vulnerable and needing protection it could show you the death of that part of your feeling.

If a dream seems to predict the death of your child, it is wise to remember two things. the first is that a said above many dreams about our baby are actually about injury or death of our vulnerable self – See Characters and People in Dreams.

That predictive dreams are very uncommon. But if you are feeling it is predictive remember that the future is not set in stone.  But you can pray for protection for your child and it can change the outcome.


Gifted or holy baby: Often shows the dreamer having given birth to parts of their personality which are connected with wider sympathies, or wider awareness, than their own personal ego or self. It may show an awareness of the universal processes of life. It is the same sort of meaning as Christ in symbolism. It can show the emergence of awareness of the levels of existence beyond the senses. See: esp in dreams.

Example: “Was in a basement where my wife and a woman I loved was giving birth to a baby, but I was somehow the one who gave birth to it without a doctor being there. It was a lovely boy. Its lower face was covered by a tight caul, but I pulled this off and it began to breathe. It opened its eyes and looked about, fully conscious; then said something about Jesus, and, “It is gone!” I asked what had gone, and it replied, “The other ego; where has it gone?” I explained that the spirit self it knew before birth was now gone so it could live in the body. The baby was then taken upstairs, and I felt it was a holy and wonderful baby. I was going to rest from the rigours of the birth, but on looking around saw how dusty and dirty the basement was. I began to clean it, and felt I would go upstairs and rest afterwards.”

The man who dreamt this said that he felt afterwards that at the time of the dream he had given birth to the very best of him. This became more and more obvious as years went by. Also he realised that his inner life, his unconscious, needed cleaning, and then began to go upstairs to his wider awareness. It could be helpful for you to use the following Talking As.

If you have given birth without any man involved, it suggests it is a virgin birth – i.e. no male partner was involved at the time.

Many women dream of giving birth without any man involved. Virgin birth is normal part of dreaming. It means that the woman or young girl has conceived as a process of Life. Being a virgin represents the human soul or psyche and its possibility of dropping pre-conceptions, thus attaining an inner virginity and through that being receptive to the unseen or unconscious side of self. Joseph Campbell in his book “Myths To Live By” says – “There are myths and legends of the Virgin Birth, of Incarnations, Deaths and Resurrections; Second Comings, Judgements and the rest, in all the great traditions. And since such images stem from the psyche (from you and your dreams), they refer to the psyche. They tell us of its structure, its order, and its forces, in symbolic terms.”

For instance, the story and events surrounding the virgin birth, when looked as if a dream are not about a biological miracle, but about how as ordinary people, we can drop our preconceptions, our fixed ideas and beliefs and allow an entirely new and creative impulse into our life. This truth has been so venerated that we find virgin figures all over the world such as Maya the mother of Buddha born 500 BC; the virgin mother of Osiris, and of course the story told of Mary.

Being a virgin in this case is about having a mind free from previous ‘conceptions’ and so being open to Life itself fertilising you for a new and precious thing being born. If you are not a virgin because you have had children, that is not what virgin birth is about. It is about conceiving without any mental preconceptions, having an open and receptive mind or soul. it is about a wonderful human possibility.

So the dream baby born to you in this way a wonderful creative act between you and Life. It is a new part of you that if you let it gradually grow into your waking life as a new force, a new way of feeling about life and acting. Being pregnant like that is very important. Obviously you are not going to give birth to a physical baby, but dream babies are important too.

Only a ‘virgin birth’ can bring forth the birth of an intuition, a new response to oneself and ones environment, that transforms ones life. This is a living relationship with the mystery which underlies our life. If we generate a child in this way, we are not held prisoner by habits of thought, stereotypes of behaviour, then we can begin to allow into our waking life what was previously impossible to know. This open state of mind and feelings, acts as a link between the identity or personality, and the deep unconscious life processes. This link allows a birth of realisations and inner change that brings healing and a possibility of experiencing the aspect of oneself that is our core self.

Crying baby or helpless baby: Your fundamental needs are not being, or were not in the past, met. These include basic things like feeling happy and relaxed in ones environment, feeling wanted and loved, having a sense of connection with other people. There may be something distressing you at a feeling/needing level that you are not acknowledging; a new project or aspect of self needing more care.

But it is part of inbuilt wisdom in babies to cry and act helpless of injured to get their needs or a parents love. So if you dream of such a baby it may well be showing you that you are using the same tactics to get people’s sympathy.

Example: Baby pelicans can produce a false epileptic fit; they do this because it is a way to get their parents to carry on feeding them. The alternative is that they must get off their butt and feed themselves.

Dream Baby – i.e. one you gave birth to in your dream. Dream babies are usually special and are a way that you give birth to either parts of your personality that have developed over time and  are now ‘born’. They slowly become obvious to us as new talents, a new direction, or even a new way of life.

Such babies are easy to give birth to, and usually are beautiful and speak soon.

Do I need a pregnancy test if I dream of having a baby?: If you are having unprotected regular sex or if you are trying for a baby, then yes have a test.  But if you know you had not had sex with a partner, then it is a dream baby. See all the comments and answers at the bottom of the page.

Dropping a baby: Carelessness in dealing with your basic needs, especially in relationship; mishandling an opportunity; betraying trust; feeling you have been ‘dropped’ by someone, perhaps in a relationship. It might also at times suggest a miscarriage or the lack of support in caring for a pregnancy.

Example: I turned and ran with the pram at a small boy on a tricycle who was pedalling toward me playfully. We laughingly collided. Not a bad bump, but enough to send the baby over onto the ground on its head. The baby cried but didn’t seem badly hurt. I realised it was the second time I had dropped the baby, and felt I must be more careful and responsible. We were then preparing for a storm on the ship.

It was during the past few days that my wife told me that her period was late. She thought she was pregnant. This caused an awful situation between us. I was out of work in an area that offered me no work. I suggested she had an abortion. As it turned out it was a false pregnancy. However, the damage had been done. (Apparently I had dropped the baby?)

Girl baby: Birth or emergence of new aspects of feelings and feeling relationship with others. But in a females dream may mean an emergence of a new phase or a new start in her life.

Giving birth: A healthy woman is designed by nature to create a baby.  But it is also true that at the heart of a woman’s being is the power of creation, and that creation can go in any direction – a mother, an artist, a dancer, a poet, a social worker, or even an alcoholic or drug dependent.

But in our dream world the image of your creation is usually in the form of a baby. But as you may not be pregnant you have produced an image of your creation and creativeness. It is new so you do not know what it is. That you have dreamt this at all shows you need to take note of this extraordinary creativeness and investigate it. You can do this by imagining your self as the baby –  remember that dreams are showing reflections of your own inner world so the baby is an expression of your creativity – and talk as the baby describing what it feels. Use Talking As.

If it is difficult or a C-section then you are anxious or have fears about having a baby, or else there is a history of difficulty that you need to work out. Try using Carry the Dream Forward.

That you have dreamt this at all shows you need to take note of this extraordinary creativeness and investigate it. You can do this by imagining your self as the baby –  remember that dreams are showing reflections of your own inner world so the baby is an expression of your creativity – and talk as the baby describing what it feels. Talking As

And do not dismiss this as a silly dream, such dream babies have a very real purpose and life of their own. They are your creation out of the wonderful creative process that is a woman, and your own ideals and longings. If you nurture them you will see them grow – I call the spirit children.

Happy baby: Feeling at ease with oneself and surroundings. It may be that something has happened in a relationship or environment that brings a deeper level of relaxation and sense of security.

Hitting the baby: Usually a sign of not being able to cope with ones own childhood pain, and so it ends in hitting. See: hitting.

In a man’s dream: The same as general definitions, but also may be oneself at that age; desire for parenthood; weight of responsibility; fear of inability to produce. See Man Giving Birth to Baby.

In child’s dream: Themselves at that age; feelings about a baby sibling.

In woman’s dream: The same as general definitions, but also may be oneself at that age; desire for a baby; responsibility of caring for baby; worries about having healthy baby; worries about baby’s welfare.

Losing/not finding a baby: Losing contact with or not caring for your fundamental feeling responses to life; losing an opportunity or mishandling a delicate relationship; feeling lost and abandoned in ones own child feelings.

Man giving birth to a baby: Often happens during the pregnancy of the mans partner; shows the man bringing something to birth in himself. This is usually a new understanding, or a new sympathy or viewpoint. It can show the emergence of awareness of the unconscious. See Special Baby

Neglecting or forgetting baby: Many baby dreams, as in the example at the bottom, have this theme of neglecting, or even starving the baby. This is usually because we need to take care of, or be more aware of, how much personal need we have for things like care, appreciation and love being given to us. If as a baby our need for being held and given attention were met, then we can move into the next phase of our growth. But if these needs were never met, one is often stuck emotionally at this level of development. See Beware of Love.

If you are a parent with a baby, the dream may represent natural anxieties about ones ability as a parent – i.e. the dream may reflect a fear you are not giving as much to your child as you wish, or that you find yourself wishing for a break from parenthood.

Example: ‘I have my own baby who is lying in a cot in a bedroom looking very weak and pathetic with eyes closed. I know that he or she is getting weaker and weaker through lack of food and care. In fact the baby seems to be dying. The feelings of guilt are terrible because I know it is my responsibility to do something to make it well. I keep saying to myself I must go and feed that baby – but I don’t. I just keep worrying and feeling guilty.’ J. C.

Because of circumstances we may not have been able to satisfy all our babyhood needs – we may have been weaned earlier than we wanted; our need for attention may have been unsatisfied or we felt rejected or unwanted – and these are shown as a baby in our dreams. Dreams such as the above show how we sense the need of this part of us to be cared for and nourished. If some of these earliest needs are not met in some way, the development of our enthusiasm, our pleasure and ability to be involved and self-giving, may be diminished, giving rise to dreams suggesting the need for nourishment, as above. See: baby – healing and helping; baby in my dreams.

Nursing a baby: Caring for ones own infant needs which still exist in ones adult life; giving care and love to someone who is relating to you in a baby way; wanting a baby, or needing to express the depth of your own ability to give and love.

Pregnancy – dreaming of baby during: Most women dream about their growing baby during pregnancy. These dreams are vary varied and often anxious or frightening. Such dreams are not to be taken as signs of a problem other than natural anxiety. Occasionally a pregnant woman dreams of the identity or personality of her unborn child, perhaps even before it is conceived. This can of course occur to the father too. See: pregnancy; birth dreams during pregnancy; fifth example under penis, in the body section.

Sick baby: Our babyhood experience builds the foundation of all relationship with other people and the world. If for instance we are punished for being curious, or are traumatised in our need for love and support, it will show in our adult relationships. Perhaps we will lack explorative curiosity, or avoid or have difficulties in a close relationship. The sick baby usually depicts such difficulties. Exploring our feelings in connection with the sick baby, or being the sick baby as in Gestalt dream-work, will help uncover the details and intense feelings involved in such unsatisfying emotions and habitual responses.

Starving baby: See: Neglecting or forgetting baby: above.

Twins or twin: The many polar opposites or splits in us – the split between waking consciousness and sleep or the unconscious; the split between what we want in our deepest desires, and what we can allow ourselves socially; the split caused by infant trauma; the split between our sense of eternity and the facts of physical mortality; introversion and extroversion; something of self which has got split off; the lack of balance in our being; twins can represent duality, conflict, or two sides of an issue, but also the emergence of something new, something that was denied, or born with one, but never acknowledged as part of oneself; ones unconscious relationship with another person, such as occurs in a telepathic link; separation.

Or perhaps even ‘died at birth’, or one died, leaving us feeling only half a person; the lack of balance in our being. When one of the babies died and the other survived it might be as happens often that the situation wasn’t right for one perhaps because of health issues. See Tony’s Inner Voice

When appearing with a couple: The marriage – what is created in the relationship; the life process in us based on reproduction. What you have produced and care for or neglect together

Quoted from Dreams and Dreaming, by Norman Mackenzie.

Then I went back in my mind to being two years old when I felt that a terrible thing had happened to me, the realisation that my mother had no love for me. I saw her holding a male baby and I felt in that instant that I hated males. I had just this fundamental feeling, a terrible feeling, and it grew and I became full of hate and I realised that it was directed toward the opposite sex. I felt that this had begun at an early age when I felt that my mother had given affection to the male members of the family and not myself. I was the only female. I realised that at that age she didn’t love me and I must have felt jealous of the male This grew up within me.

This graphically describes the depth of feeling we often carry from our earliest years, feelings which deeply influence our adult behaviour. In this case it made the woman’s relationships with her husband strained and tense.

Example: I have my own baby who is lying in a cot in a bedroom looking very weak and pathetic with eyes closed. I know that he or she is getting weaker and weaker through lack of food and care. In fact the baby seems to be dying. The feelings of guilt are terrible because I know it is my responsibility to do something to make it well. I keep saying to myself I must go and feed that baby – but I don’t. I just keep worrying and feeling guilty. J. C.

Because of circumstances we may not have been able to satisfy all our babyhood needs – we may have been weaned earlier than we wanted; our need for attention may have been unsatisfied or we felt rejected or unwanted – and these are shown as a baby in our dreams, as with J. C. Dreams such as the above show how we sense the need of this part of us to be cared for and nourished. If some of these earliest needs are not met in some way, the development of our enthusiasm, our pleasure and ability to be involved and self-giving, may be diminished, giving rise to dreams suggesting the need for nourishment, as above. See: baby healing and helping; baby in my dreams.

Example: I am 48, have two children in their late teens and definitely DO NOT want another baby. Nevertheless I have a recurring dream in which I am always in labour, experiencing no pain, and although there are nursing staff I am in some sort of laboratory, although everything is very pleasant. I never actually give birth and when I wake I always have a vague feeling of disappointment. V. I.

This dreamers conscious decision to have no more children may be in conflict with her biological urge for another baby. But the dream might also suggest there is something she deeply want to give birth to in her life but has not yet achieved. Her creativity did not end with her children, there is still more for her to bring out of herself in some way.

Example: My mouth was full of what looked like liver. It was also coming out of my left ear. When I turned away from the mirror I saw medical people in caps and gowns who kept telling me to bear down. I then gave birth to a baby out of my mouth. I am an invalid and very sick at present. Mr. M. S.

This mans dream is about preparation for death. The baby is the extraction of all that can live on after his present life is left behind in death. See: death – is there life afterwards.

I dreamt I was sitting on the couch and quickly birthed a baby boy. My husband took him upstairs to sleep. I didn’t see the baby. When the baby awoke, he wasn’t a newborn. He was the size of a about a year old and very smart. He didn’t need us and would randomly lay down for his own naps, turn the car radio, etc. We kept having to find him. I never pushed out the placenta and was bleeding and in extreme pain. I tried to leave our house and jump over a puddle. The puddle turned out to be very deep, almost muddy Creek like, aND I struggled to get out. The dream was pure anxiousness and helplessness.

    -Anna - Tony's Assistant 2016-04-20 9:47:06

    Dear Jess – A baby is in many ways “the fruit of the relationship” and it is also a symbol of what you take into you and give birth to, because of living with and loving your husband.
    Your dream suggests that after giving birth you are not aware of how your relationship continues to develop; “My husband took him upstairs to sleep. I didn’t see the baby.”
    Your perception of not being needed causes a lot of difficult feelings and you wish to return to the time when you felt needed; “I never pushed out the placenta and was bleeding and in extreme pain.”
    When you try to escape from your pain – leave your house – you realise that the only way out is through the puddle – you cannot jump over it – and struggling to get out is not the answer.
    The puddle is a way to explore your inner life so that you can start to process your pain and understand what is going on in your inner world and in the relationship with your husband.
    The feelings of anxiousness and helplessness in your dream reflect that the roots of your experience lay in your childhood.
    The pain of losing a loved one is also frequently a sign that your infant or child self is still wounded or malformed, and needs the healing of being allowed into consciousness and thereby integrated into the adult personality.
    See also and
    It is good to realise that exploring your inner world and the muddy puddle is a process that will take time.
    If you feel like it you could explore the different symbols in your dream – your own dream figure, your husband, the baby boy, the placenta and the puddle – by using and/or read about these symbols in the dream dictionary.

I had a dream I gave birth on my bed with my man standing there watching me. It was too late to get to the hospital. I gave birth to a baby boy. He was a fat baby like 10 lb. I pushed him out with little pain and he landed on the bed and took a breath and let out his first cry. I said aww and picked him up cleaned his face and let him nurse from my breast. As he was drinking I looked at his father and said he looks just like you with his big cheeks. His father smiled and I woke up. What does this mean.

    -Anna - Tony's Assistant 2016-04-12 7:58:40

    Dear Nisha – Because your husband is involved in your dream, I would see your baby as a symbol for the fruit of your relationship; for what has developed inside of you because of loving and living with your husband.
    So it may symbolise that you are learning to express more of your “male potential” because the baby is a boy.
    Psychologically, we may only express part of our potential in everyday life. In a woman, the more physically dynamic, intellectual and socially challenging side of herself such as assertiveness and taking charge of situations may be given less expression. Apart from this some features, such as innovation and creative rational thought, may be held in latency. Even if this is not true for the modern woman, there are features of her full potential that are held as secondary or latent characteristics, and are depicted by the male in female dreams.
    A way to get a feeling understanding of what you have given birth to is to use and by exploring the questions from
    Breastfeeding your child indicates that you care for this aspect that has come into your life.
    Anna 🙂

I had a dream that I was pregnant and went into the hospital to deliver the baby. After I deliver it they take the baby from the room and I never get to see it. My mom comes back and tells me that the baby was born deformed and had multiple issues. I start to cry and feel this is my fault. She then tells me that it’s okay, because my cousin (who is in high school ) just had a baby as well and that I can raise hers as my own. I start to cry again and wonder about the baby. She tells me it’s okay because the baby has been adopted by someone who can take care of it. I go home (which takes place at my grandparents house ) and proceed to raise my cousins baby girl as my own. At one point I foget what I named the baby and remember that when I was younger that I told my mom that if I ever had a little girl it would have her middle name. I want to make sure that I gave the little girl her middle name but can’t remember what I originally named the girl to begin with.

I had a dream that I was getting my baby son out of the care and I been so happy that I finally had my baby and I don’t have no kids in real life so what do this dream mean?

-CortneyD 2016-02-17 7:37:32

I have 3 children ages 8, 3 and 18 months. After my last was born I had a tubal ligation and am now divorcing the father of my youngest two. Last night I had a dream that I had a baby girl but I was no longer at the hospital and suddenly realized I never nursed her so I rushed back to the hospital to breastfeed her and was very anxious and worried that she might be starving. When I got there she seemed perfect and wasn’t upset and then I nursed her and felt so complete and in awe. I remember looking into her eyes and just feeling complete bliss as she fed. It seemed so vivid and real. I don’t normally remember dreams in detail but I did this one. I am very much for my divorce and have not thought about having another child but this isn’t the first dream I’ve had about having a baby. I had another one about a month ago where I was married to a long time friend (lots of unresolved feelings) and I felt inadequate because I couldn’t give him a baby and so I had a reversal and surprised him with me being pregnant. I don’t know if the two are related and I am having a hard time finding a meaning to it all.

-Faith Alexander 2016-02-09 7:33:05

I keep having reoccurring dreams of unexpected pregnancies for about 3 years. I would give birth to twin boys who look just like my 3 year old son as a baby or of triplet girls who reminded me of the guy I was talking to at the time. This last dream I didn’t know who the father was until later who turned out to be a “famous actor”. What’s strange to me now is that at the hospital they told me it was a girl I got so excited but when they gave me a 3 d module of the baby it had a penis and I was kind of disappointed but I said I’ll wait until the baby comes and see. They take some blood from me and raise the bed that am now laying vertically the nurse then lowers the bed but then my body goes back in the air. Its just me alone in the hospital room with the nurses no family me members. It was a pretty easy labor no pain baby comes out easily and it is a boy. While talking to the nurses am I so exited I have a beautiful baby boy but at the same time I don’t know who the father is. So I’m calculating to see when I could have possibly gotten pregnant because I always had a period just one time it was late in my waking life and that was when I travelled to England. So in the dream I said that mist be it! However as the child grows older its more resembling a girl I name he Conseita – what I think in my dream is Spanish for conceive- and so her dads comes around and is awed about the story and is like wow I have a sweet looking little girl. What also sticks out in the dream was my mother and grandmother was in it as well my grandmother died in 2011and I’m trying to call my current boyfriend and couldn’t get through. In the dream my daughters father was in some kind of trouble he wasn’t supposed to find me and so they planted a scorpion on him. I didn’t know about it but she (meaning my grandmother) knew, she was outside washing some clothes which she so happens to have a knife in her hand and I step on the claws and tail of the scorpion and she cuts them off.

-jacqualien 2016-02-06 15:47:31

Please would you help explain. I had a dream where I gave birth to a girl. And with in seconds I watch her grow into a adult. What was strange is that once she was an adult she had these indeginous markings on her chin. We then walked to a house and then we entered a room. It was quite dark.

    Dear Jacqualien – Your dream reflects that you have given birth to a part of you that probably has not had any opportunity to be expressed before. It is a part that clearly does not need much time to mature.
    I believe that in your dream you have created your personal rite of passage or initiation into womanhood. The indigenous tattoo or marking could be a symbol of that too;
    Why is your conscious self freaked out about this dream?
    How did your dream figure respond in the dream;
    The woman who fondled your private parts is a part of you too – you gave birth to her yourself first – she does not reflect your desire to have sex with a woman.
    With that in mind, can you accept that you have given birth to a natural part inside you that allows you to satisfy your sexual needs?

I’m having a dream of me giving birth to a baby girl who is tiny but we get to bring her home. After a few days she has breathing problems and we try to safe her but she end up dieding anyway. Can you explain to me what this mean me and my partner aren’t trying for a baby?

I have tea curing dreams not in the same senerio, that I am panicking looking for a baby that belongs to me it feels so real, I wake from these dreams and I sit and wonder if that was real if I had lost or misplaced my baby and my laptop and it dawns on me it was just another unusual dream that I can’t make sense of. I wake up burst into my sons room and say where’s the baby? He says “mom you must be dreaming again. My heart is usually racing when I awake from this strange dream.

    -Anna - Tony's Assistant 2016-01-25 15:59:15

    Dear Tamara – If you dream often about losing things – like a baby or a laptop – it might reflect that you are deeply uncertain about yourself, probably in different areas of your (inner) world.
    In other words you are feeling a loss of identity, wondering where you are going in life, who you are in the present situation, or what value you have.
    Often such feelings come about from losing contact with your deep feelings and passions. Without them you may feel you have no rudder; no place to head for.
    These recurring dreams can arise because there is a need to learn something. Also the growth instinct is an incredible powerful one and pushes you through growth, sometimes unwillingly. And if you resist it can cause recurring dreams. See also
    Perhaps this approach will help you to;

I am currently 6 months pregnant and I keep having dreams regarding my pregnancy which I know is often just pregnancy anxiety, however some of them I feel have a deeper meaning which I can’t exactly pinpoint the definitions. One of my previous dreams I was running away from my family because they were trying to take my baby for me, my baby was quiet wrapped in a light blue blanket (I later learned I was having a boy) but when I looked down his eyes were a marbled blue gray and he was blind I was crying running telling him I would take care of him but I don’t know what the meaning of my baby being blind is. In another dream I was going into labor me and another women the other women had her baby no problem however I was standing in an all white room no longer pregnant but without my baby, as I was screeming asking for help to find my baby drawers appeared with Babies in them and I had to go through each drawer to find my baby of which o eventually did. And in a couple of dreams although I know I’m having a boy, in my dreams I am taking care of a little girl and last night in my dream the little girl had bright pink hair and we were traveling on a school bus with other children and parents? I don’t know a lot of random stuff I’d like some clarification on to help my wondering mind be put at ease.
Thank you.

    Dear Destiny Ruiz – You are right about a deeper meaning, because pregnancy is a time of radical inner changes too. It will also be helpful to read Julia Karadi’s view on pregnancy, birth and natal;
    Because of the inner changes you are going through, you can also dream of giving birth to a “dream child”. So the baby in your dream then reflects something that is new and growing in yourself; please also read
    If you have given birth to a baby boy, it is usually about the principle of maleness entering your life. Maleness is like the sun, it expresses most of its energy outwardly to give life;
    The part in your dream where you are running away from your family because they are trying to get the baby from you probably reflects an unconscious inner conflict between your old values, attitudes and emotional or social responses that you have absorbed from your family and the new you or the new way to see certain things that is born within you and that you are unwilling to look at yet; the baby boy is blind.
    A better way to deal with this temporarily inner conflict is to face it – and so no running away – and to explore the symbol of the baby boy;
    Inner growth is about finding your own way and that often means letting go of the old; finding your own path in how you want to fill in your mother role (too);
    I believe the second dream is an anxiety dream about “the fear for loss or losing your child.”
    The dream about taking care of the little girl reflects how you are taking care of your inner child. Her bright, pink hair may reflect her thoughts and inner brightness and you can explore this part of your inner world too by using “Being the little girl”.
    You do not describe how she appears in other dreams; perhaps reading this will be helpful too;
    Traveling on a school bus with other parents and children might reflect that you are on your way to a new stage of life; a new stage of learning on your way to motherhood.
    Was any of this helpful to you and if so what? Any feedback is appreciated.
    Anna 🙂

I had a dream I found a baby girl who was six months and called the police so they can do what they have to do and no one came for her and I had to go to court also since I’m the one who found her I just wanted to best for her they were saying the options but so much was going through my mind I said I would take her. “Me and my husband have been trying for a baby and no luck I’ve slipping into depression and these aren’t really helping.”

    Dear Calvin – You wrote; “I wanted something more I could relate to, and specific.”
    It is like asking me to bake pancakes from the flour you did not bring 😉
    Perhaps you can ask your girlfriends mother to read this article and write down every aspect of her dream, how she felt, what could have triggered a dream like that etc.?
    Anna 🙂
