The Spiritual Pregnancy

I've been involved with a project dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about women's spiritual pregnancy experiences.

The Spiritual Pregnancy

What Are Spiritual Pregnancy Experiences?

Have you had a spiritual pregnancy experience?

Maybe you've dreamed something about your unborn child, and later discovered that your dream wasn't just a dream? That it was somehow real?

Or perhaps you've experienced pregnancy-related signs, dreams, or moments of inner knowingness, which prepared you for what was to come?

Have you ever felt that your baby was introducing him or herself to you, or communicating with you, before birth?

Experiencing prophetic pregnancy dreams, noticing spiritual pregnancy signs or moments of pregnancy intuition, and sharing inner dialogue with one's unborn baby all fall into the category of spiritual pregnancy experiences, or pre-birth communication as those experiences are often called.

Pregnancy and Spirituality

Pregnancy seems to be a time of heightened spiritual awareness for many women. It's not at all unusual for pregnant women to experience prophetic dreams about their pregnancies or babies, to notice signs which serve to guide them in their decisions or prepare them for what is to come, or even to sense things within themselves as a powerful inner knowingness—a knowingness sometimes so strong, it leaves no room for doubts.


The Spiritual Pregnancy Project

A few years ago, a friend and I were talking about spiritual pregnancy experiences. As we compared notes, we began to realize just how powerful and life-changing these experiences can be. Yet if a woman is not looking for these types of pre-birth communication experiences in her own life, sometimes she may pass over one without fully realizing what has happened, what the experience means, and how much of a gift she has been given.

My friend and I decided we'd like to help increase awareness about these types of spiritual pregnancy experiences to women around the world so that they too can look for the experiences in their own lives. Also, we decided we'd like to provide some tips for those women who are looking for this type of spiritual experience. Thus, the Spiritual Pregnancy Project was born!

We decided the best way to spread awareness about spiritual pregnancy experiences was to create a website and a book on the subject, and maybe even to offer workshops on the topic at some point as well. In addition to providing information and tips on spiritual pregnancy experiences, we'd also like to share stories about pre-birth communication experiences happening to women around the world. Therefore, we are now in the process of collecting true stories about women's spiritual pregnancy experiences for our websites, book, articles, and workshops.

Types of Spiritual Pregnancy Experiences

Prophetic Dreams, Signs, Intuition / Inner Knowingness, And Pre-Birth Inner Dialogue!

While collecting stories for our book, we've discovered that many women have a spiritual pregnancy story to share! Here are some of the types of spiritual pregnancy experiences we've learned about so far.

Prophetic Pregnancy Dreams

Many women experience dreams early in their pregnancies which let them know they are pregnant, or that they are having twins. Prophetic dreams about the gender, personality, health, or appearance that their infant will have, or that prepare women for complications during pregnancy or delivery, are also common. Many of these dreams are very vivid and are often described as "dream meetings" with their unborn child.

Would you like to find out more about pregnancy dreams or read a few dreams that other women have sent in?

Pregnancy Intuition and Inner Communication

Some pregnant women have shared with us about times when they sensed something within themselves as a strong inner knowingness or intuition. A few moms even described special Soul to Soul inner dialogue communications they'd had with their unborn child! Interested in finding out more about pregnancy intuition and inner dialogue, or reading some stories others have sent us?

Spiritual Pregnancy Signs

Some moms experience signs or messages which let them know various things about their pregnancies or babies, such as the gender of their unborn child or that they themselves are pregnant. Other signs guide pregnant women in their decisions.

One unwed woman, for example, was wondering whether to keep her baby or give him up for adoption. As she sat pondering her choices, she heard a song on the radio which suddenly made her decision clear for her. The song was: "You're Having My Baby," She decided to keep the baby.

How Did You First Find Out About Your Pregnancy?

Connecting With Your Unborn Baby

Some women find that engaging in prenatal meditation, contemplation, or spiritual exercises helps them connect more with their unborn babies. When you get in the habit of taking a few minutes every day to look within yourself, and just listen, you may soon find there is something to listen to. Whether you identify yourself as listening to your own higher self, to the universe, to life, to your intuition, to God, or to your baby, you are strengthening your spiritual listening skills.

There are many ways to go about this. Some women may prefer one method, while others may do better with another. But the important aspect of all of them is getting quiet and then listening within.

One Technique for Connecting With Your Unborn Baby

Here's one technique you may wish to try.

  1. Find someplace comfortable to sit or lie down.
  2. Close your eyes and think of someone or something you love.
  3. Fill your heart with love. Perhaps you'd like to think about your love for your partner, your children, or for your unborn baby.
  4. Then when you are ready, begin to sing / chant Huuuuuuu in a long, drawn-out voice. It's pronounced like the man's name, "Hugh."
  5. Try singing/chanting it with love for about five to ten minutes, and then just get quiet and listen within yourself.
  6. You may want to ask your unborn baby a question. Just remember not to do all the talking yourself. The key here is to listen.

When will these spiritual pregnancy signs. Because I'm tired.

Allisson on May 17, 2020:

The day before my appointment I had a dream that I touched hands with a baby boy and I knew he was mine. Fast forward 3-4 weeks later (today) I had a dream where my baby was born and he was so tiny and I was just holding him, but then he was back in and it was a montage of my stomach growing bigger and then he came out.

Tracey on March 27, 2020:

My nan who had passed came to me in a dream looked and me and smile, she said your going to be a good mum, 4 days later i took a pregnancy test to find out i was pregnant! 14 weeks in i had another dream it was a girl and that only my mum new but accidentally told me, in real life i paid privately for a gender scan so i could have both my partner and my mum their, a lady put the gender into an envelope and gave it to my mum as she was doing a gender reveal party, waiting in the waiting room another lady came out said congratulations a little baby girl, she then realised i didnt know up till that moment... so reveal party was out the window, ive also had a dream of going into labour and holding my little girl in my arms and it felt so magical she was perfect i have so much love for her already and have 10 weeks left to go, feeling blessed.

Dudu on November 02, 2019:

My son came to visit both my husband and I in dream.

He was about 20 in my dream. 12 months after that dream he was born and he came out looking like the baby version of the young adult who came to see us.

Brittany on October 11, 2019:

I have mang spiritual dreams. First pregnancy I was having twins before I found out I was actually having twins. Just found out I am pregnant last week the day before I took my test I had a dream I was pregnant so that's why I took the test and the wala I'm pregnant. I have crazy real dreams it's crazy.

Maxi on August 30, 2019:

I met my woman when I was considering who to marry. In my dream someone visited me telling me this is the woman I should marry. I woke up and prayed over it. My mind became strong about my choice of marrying her. We got along good and finally we got married.

Then the same spirit visited me again in my dream telling me my wife will give birth to a baby boy and I believe it. I told my wife all of it because we do pray on the phone when I am away and when we are together .

Behold she got pregnant and after going through scanning twice now , it shows we are expecting a baby boy. Searching for a name to give him. Anyone got idea of baby names for special gift from the Almighty God

Katy on August 18, 2019:

I first met my son in a dream. We were on a train, and it came to a stop. He stood up and said "ok, bye mum. I will see you next time". I didnt know I was pregnant, but I woke to stabbing pains in my stomach and heavy bleeding. But I couldn't get checked out by the doctor as we were moving interstate that day.... and then, I was I was in a car crash....and went into shock, and the bleeding stopped!

Fast foward to a week after the crash...

I was laying in bed, and a voice said (as clear as day) "his name is Patrick, take good care of him" and a warmth passed over my body and into my abdomen, I woke up, knowing I was pregnant. I went to the doctor and said "im pregnant". We took the urine test, it came back negative. But I insisted, and we did a blood test. It was positive.

But the HCG was extremely low, that the doctor said I had likely miscarried.

A few days later, another test was done. The HCG had started rising again. The doctor explained aboit stunted growth, and how it can sometimes occur.

I used the name Patrick for my sons middle name (as I felt that I needed to have a say also as hisa mum, but also respect the entity that visited me that morning).

Elika kanaka on May 15, 2019:

Before I found out I was pregnant with each kid I have 4 :) kids 2 boys and 2 girls I had a dream about each 1 before finding out I was pregnant and I would dream about there appearance and gender before finding out and seeing what they look like

Vanessa on April 06, 2019:

My father passed away 25 of january in a very short unexpected time. After that I had vivid dreams about conversations with my dad. Things started getting odd when I had the same dream twice. A middle-aged woman pointed my belly and told me that I was pregnant with a Soul named Joaquin. That's not my dad. But anyway a week later I decided to visit a medium and the first thing she told me was that I had premonitory dreams, between other shocking experiences I had with her. One week later my period didn't come and after waiting since I'm irregular I decided to take a pregnancy test. The result was very positive. We had been trying for a year after a previous miscarriage. Odd and amazing.

Jleesa on April 05, 2019:

I have been having dreams.I dreamed of triplets,but one is a spiritual birth..Dream of being told i am pregnant and i went to Doctor for confirmation and i was sent to room 7,i was woke up by my brother calling me(phone). I am scare to test because i have gotten false test.Even a commercial with a positive pregnancy test.

August on January 31, 2019:

I had the blessing of this i would like to share my story to other women who are on the fence with believing supernatural occurences I was 16 very young and i had a vision about a boy i was walking by the water and someone tapped me on the shoulder and they called me momma i frowned and said i dont have kids and i turned around and saw him my baby boy beautiful he looked like me and was of light essence i knew he was my son he then spoke softly im okay momma stop worrying i love you and grandma the most tell the family and your friends i am with ancestors and friends in heaven all is good i have to go home now you must see what is real and fake in life i went to hug him instinctly to feel him but there was a barrier he shook his head no with tears and he flew up above the water and symbols from my culture appeared and he flashed into a light months later i became pregnant and i had a misscarriage 2 months after i lost him at home in my bathroom i sat in the tub praying saying why couldnt creator have taken me instead of my babyboy i held him in my hand and i buried him think about it how would you feel if you passed away and your mother flushed you down the toilet or threw you away? You cannot call yourself spiritual person if you disrespect life so easily without his enligtenment i wouldnt be as strong as i am today he woke up i realized how precious a child is and how a mother and child bond is strongest the strength and glow of the womans essence is different when you hold the child in your womb without him i wouldnt be sober today without him i dont think i would be alive

August on January 31, 2019:

I would like to enlighten women

Iris Carcana on January 30, 2019:

I’m transformed completely in a way that I didn’t know my self. My spiritual baby is real I get hungry all the time. I know what going on around me had visions. God bless y’all

PageSamantha on November 15, 2018:

So ive had 2miscarriages this year and about 2 weeks ago I had a odd dream about taking a pregnancy test with 4 lines which meant i was pregnant, i decided the next morning to take a real test and it was negative so i brushed it off. About 4 days ago I had another dream except this time with a regular two lines showing i was infact pregnant. I have had this itching in the back of my mind to test since the second dream. I tested this morning with a pregnancy test and it came out positive!!!! We are pregnant with our rainbow baby!! Fingers crossed this one sticks! I had bad feelings about my last 2 previous pregnancies that ended in mc. ( i do have a 2 year old son) and i have great feelings about this one

Michelle on October 05, 2018:

I was told as a teen that I would never have a child because the chemo-therapy I had to have destroyed my eggs. As an adult I would conceive but miscarry. One night I had a dream about this baby boy that my family & my fiancé’s mother was so in awe with. In my dream I felt as though I was his mother. A couple yrs later I became pregnant. At 7mos I gave birth to a 2pd 10oz premature baby boy. He is now a healthy 16yr old young man.

Leslie Ann Klein on October 03, 2018:

I’m always pregnant but they give birth to them in other worlds. I have stretch marks on my belly this year- gained 100 lbs this year and my belly got really big. I kept having visions that I was pregnant in spirit. But they babies I can’t give birth to hear bc they are in spirit. I know I had twins. I’ve been a carrier since I was a baby. I have many babies in the other side. They were all taken from me. I yearn for family and friends. I am stuck in a haunting world used as a carrier for others to have children. I am alone trapped in the physical but all my family is in spirit. I need help to get out of this haunting world to get to the other side and be with family and friends.

Jamira on September 23, 2018:

I don't know if im pregnant or not yet. But I keep having visions of me holding a baby or having a baby.

Nina on August 15, 2018:

I am glad to have found this. I am currently having my 1st pregnancy, and it is twins! I was told their names, and i hear them talk to me. They are miracle babies seeing as i was diagnosed with endometriosis last year, as well as being a type1 diabetic with multiple complications. I have always been intuitive, coming from a line of pastors, ministers etc. And also being a natural musician. It has been one incredible journey thus far, and something my husband and i had prayed for. We are blessed to have the opportunity to be parents, and are grateful!

Brianna on August 10, 2018:

I dreamed that i was pregnant and in labour i had two 10pound boys and one 9 pound girl

Ashli on May 10, 2018:

About a week before I found out I was pregnant, I was laying in bed about to go to sleep. This bright light came to me and without it or I saying anything, I had a deep understanding of why it was there and what its message was. The message was that I was pregnant. I had two miscarriages before that, but I somehow knew deep down that this pregnancy was finally going to survive and I would be a mother simply because that light came to me. It basically hovered over me and then went into my body right where my uterus is.

I’m still pregnant with that child right now, I’m 27 weeks and 1 day pregnant with a baby girl we have decided to name Kalea Emmerson Aurelia. The past couple of weeks I have been feeling increasingly connected to her and feel like I’ve gotten to know her spirit a bit more. Last night, I think I met her for the first time in my dreams. I believe I got to see what she looks like, what her hair color is, her skin color, her nose (looks like mine), and I got to know her personality. She’s incredibly sweet and a little bit sassy and sarcastic (just like me). In the dream, she was the only vivid person, there were others there but I can only remember what she looked like. I even called her by her name the entire time. I felt tremendous love and happiness and I even cried from being so overwhelmed with my love for her and just knowing that was my daughter. The dream seemed to last all night, I woke up around 5:30am and fell back asleep because I didn’t need to be awake for a few hours. I just know it was her.

Kori on February 02, 2018:

I have never been physically pregnant. Recently I have been channeling with my guides and angels, one of which is my twin flame. He has brought forth a child and introduced him to me. I have seen my deceased m9m holding him and heard him tell me hi mom and I can’t wait to meet you.

Being a psychic medium I connected with others in my social circle for guidance and they don’t see me having a baby and to be honest I am with no one to make that happen physically. Is this a baby I will meet in the future or could a spiritual pregnancy turn into a real physical one?

There is not much discussion on this and most people that do claim this end up in a psych ward so I am wanting some knowledge without ending up like a crazy person.

Thank you for any insight you can share.

Rose Jones on September 22, 2012:

I think I hit the submit button too soon. Blessed!

Rose Jones on September 22, 2012:

I love what you are doing so much here Janiece. This is so much what I am all about. I had a wonderful dream of my second little boy (now very tall and 18 years old) before he was born. He said "Hi Mom: My name is Nicholas Daniel and I am your son. You will be disappointed a little when we realize that I am a boy (we didn't want to know the gender with the sonagram) but that won't last long because you are the kind of woman that should raise boys." I think I have told you that story before but now you have provided me another opportunity to do so. I love what you and the other women have done with that group - good show!

TheofficialTJo on May 01, 2012:

What does it mean when you get a dream you are pregnant,see the diamond ring on your hand and when you hold up straight the baby in your arms and you know it's a baby boy :)

Pam Irie from Land of Aloha on March 29, 2012:

There is just that "feeling" between a mother and a child that is always there and it is there for a reason, I think. Enjoyed this page!

VBright on January 29, 2012:

Oh..and blessed. :)

VBright on January 29, 2012:

Wonderful! I was pregnant 6 times (yes, 6) Each time, I knew within 1 week that I was pregnant, AND what gender they would be. I was right each time. What a valuable resource this is for pregnant women. Keep up the good work in this area.

Barbara Tremblay Cipak from Toronto, Canada on January 29, 2012:

a really excellent lens, and so interesting. I have many spiritual experiences with my kids even today (they're bigger). If there's a problem or they're in trouble I know, I'll get physical pain in my chest for oldest son. It's been bang on both times. So whenever my chest feels heavy, it's a double worry. So far it hasn't been too many times..thank goodness.

blessedmomto7 on January 29, 2012:

Interesting lens.

anonymous on December 03, 2011:

What does it mean to have a dream about an angel and for the angel to show you what the gender of your baby is?

I just love the awareness that you invite woman to explore in their pregnancies. Now I thought I had been to all your related lenses but sure did miss out on these three that I visited today. You are doing an important work!

Anthony Godinho from Ontario, Canada on October 14, 2010:

Quite interesting and fascinating! **Blessed by a Squid-Angel**

norma-holt on July 08, 2010:

Great lens on an interesting subject. Can't say I had any of these experiences during my three pregnancies but certainly think that many things you mention are possible. *-*Blessed*-* and featured on Sprinkled with Stardust and also on Parenting Young Children

RinchenChodron on February 15, 2010:

Very interesting. Fun I've never been pregnant but found your site interesting!

sciencefictionn on October 25, 2009:

This is a fascinating lens about a topic I didn't know. Pregnancy is an exceptional experience for a woman, able to awake all her sensitiveness and bring her to new dimensions. Excellent lens. 5*

this is so great... thank you

Heather Burns from Wexford, Ireland on May 27, 2009:

Really nice lens!

anonymous on May 04, 2009:

I can't believe how people have dreamed about their pregnancy before it happened? We are either dreaming or puking I suppose? Great lens. Very informative and unique. The best of luck to you. 5 stars!

Christine Hulme from SE Kent, England on February 02, 2009:

Hi! Very interesting topic and a lovely site. Yes, pregnancy is a very spiritual experience. I believe in God as the creator and therefore have felt closer to him, who is spirit, when I have been a part of this amazing act of creation.
