To dream of giving birth can represent the beginning of a new project or stage of life. More obviously, it can also represent anxiety about being pregnant.

If you dream that you are giving birth to a monster (or anything non-human), this suggests that you are holding back from expressing your inner creativity and “real” self, because you fear that others will judge your or that they will not accept your ideals.

This dream is also very common among pregnant women and represents anxieties over the health of their baby.

To dream of a stillborn baby, or giving birth to a stillborn, symbolizes your loss of trust in someone or something.

It may also represent lost innocence.

To dream that you help to deliver a baby means that you will soon undergo an important life change. You may be making life changes or getting rid of your old habits and ways.

The change will begin within you, but will probably require the cooperation of others to be completed.

If the mother dies during the birth, the transformation in your life will be very significant.
