Though, Michaels reminds us that it’s the overall story that tells you how things might end up in your life.
In general, dreams about having children shouldn’t be scary. According to Michaels, “as a dream symbol, a child is something precious, wonderful, and lovable, but at the same time, children need long-term care, love, and attention. So aside from ESP dreams of new mothers about the children and souls who will come their way – having children can be a message about a new responsibility, idea or project that is heading your way.”
“Having a child who grows very quickly tells you that the idea, new business venture, or project will grow rapidly,” Michaels said. “If the child is extremely talented, it cites special qualities to look for, and may hint that fame and success may come, in due time.”
However, the general symbol does not apply to everyone, as the dreamer could interpret it in an entirely different way than their best friend at the time.
“A child can also speak to the dreamer’s emotions, traits, and talents,” Michaels said. “An adult who had a miserable childhood who dreams of a lovely, happy child who is having a good time at the playground may be reaching to explore their own ‘inner child’ that never had a chance to come out and play. Dreaming of a child who has a temper tantrum can suggest the dreamer’s anger is out of control and that the dreamer is behaving like a spoiled child. Watching a child at play with colors or artwork can suggest artistic talents the dreamer should explore. What the child does or says is often a message about the dreamer.”
What Does It Mean When You Dream About Having Kids
If you wonder about the meaning of dreaming about children, the answer is easier than you think. It is related to what your childhood means to you: a place of innocence and purity, the melancholic return to an ideal past without troubles and full of happiness. However, going further into it, what does it mean to dream about children?
Children symbolize the return to an ideal world where there are no problems and everything evokes a special purity. The lack of pain and the absence of evil are assimilated by your brain in order to emerge in your dreams, from your subconscious, bearing a very particular message which depends on the different variations of this type of dreams.
“Usually baby dreams are a really positive sign that represent growth or development, either with you personally or with something that you’re working on,” Loewenberg says. “It’s a messge from your subconscious saying this new thing is great, it’s time to focus and nurture it. It’s time to get busy.”

If you’re dreaming about having children, it’s a good sign that you’ll be blessed with the gift of parenthood soon. However, the type of dream you have can provide more insight into what’s going on in your life. For example, if your dream involves a specific person who is pregnant or has just given birth, this could indicate that person will play an important role in your life in the near future. If there are several people in your dream who are pregnant or have recently given birth, this could mean that many people will be important to you at once—and possibly even at the same time!
If you dream about giving birth to a child and feel happy about it afterward, then congratulations! You’ve just had a glimpse into what it will be like to become a parent. This could mean that there is something new coming into your life that will bring great joy and satisfaction (such as marriage or another type of commitment). However, if this doesn’t seem like such an exciting prospect for some reason (perhaps because you have concerns about being able to financially support yourself), then this may not necessarily be good news after all!
Just what does that mean?
The meaning of dreams is a profound mystery that medical professionals, scientists, and academics are still striving to unravel. Yet, as Dr. Drerup points out, the meaning of a dream is entirely up to the dreamer. To paraphrase, “the meaning that you ascribe to the dream is going to be much more meaningful than anything I ascribe to the dream,” she always tells them. Why? “Because it’s probably something from your life that’s represented in that dream.”
Dr. Drerup gives the example of having the same dream as someone else, but arguing that yours is more true to your experience. “For instance, a dream about losing your shoes could have a very different meaning to someone who has recently gone through a divorce than it would to someone who has recently lost their job,” the author writes.
Dreaming that you are expecting a child, or otherwise involved in a new life, is also highly individual. This may happen whether you are pregnant, have recently miscarried, or are attempting to conceive. But then again. The significance of this dream to you goes much deeper than that. It’s possible that “I’m starting a new career” features prominently in your dream of pregnancy. A clean slate, so to speak. There are numerous possible interpretations of the dream.
Even if your dream experiences may have some basis in reality, that doesn’t mean they’re always accurate. Dr. Drerup explains that in a dream, “a person might be distorted, or in a situation or place where they wouldn’t normally be.” So what does that entail?” It’s anyone’s guess, really.
However, there are situations when even the most outlandish dreams can be explained. Your nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism) could be the cause of your nightmares involving tooth loss. “This dream is more of a sign of psychological stress,” Dr. Drerup explains.
