The meaning of Womb in dream | Dream interpretation
Safety, security, nurturing with no responsibility. One may never return to the state of dependency without responsibility; but may recognize the security in creative power, and the loving protection of the divine, or God-self within.
Dreams of a womb signify a desire for protection, nurturing, and a supportive space to grow, heal, be taken care of and give birth to a new idea, project, relationship, or aspect of yourself. You may be craving connection with your mother, child, or with the Divine feminine. See Goddess.
To dream about seeing or being a fetus inside the womb, symbolizes a newly developing relationship or idea in your waking life. Something creative is happening. Alternatively, you may be expressing difficulties in some situation or relationship, and your dream is a way of escaping back to a time when you had no worries or cares.
If you are pregnant when you have this dream, it is a simple reflection of your thoughts and concerns about your baby.
A dream about being in a womb could represent regression—or a desire to regress—to one’s childhood. Alternatively, it could reflect the feeling that one is being reborn in some way.
The womb represents a return to the beginning. We all have need of basic security and shelter, and perhaps to do away with responsibility. Dreams of the womb can signify our need to satisfy those requirements. On a slightly more esoteric level the womb represents our connection with the great mother or mother earth. Dreams of returning to the womb suggest our need to reconnect with the passive, more yielding side of our nature. We may need a period of self-healing and recuperation.
Figurative of the creative origin which brings new beginnings; see “baby”
The womb is where all life is created and prepared for birth. This is a powerful symbol of gestation, whether what is about to be born is a life, an idea, a creative impulse, or anything that you desire to manifest. An empty womb indicates a sense of loss or lack around your power to create something new.
If there is indeed something growing in the womb of your dream, patience will be required to allow the process that you are engaged in to run its course.
The state of existence or consciousness from which we have grown; the state or condition prior to our development of personality—this can be personal, but it also relates to all human creatures, so is historical or evolutionary.
It is a condition without ego, with a sense of being life itself. Going back to the womb, to the condition of withdrawal or autism: regression to the ‘womb’ state of awareness—therefore perhaps a time of not being able to meet the stress of having a personality with self awareness, a time of gaining respite and perhaps touching one’s roots of being in order to gain new strength.
So much of our foundations of experience are connected with our experience of prenatal life and birth that we may need to touch these experiences to heal or free pans of our nature for further growth.

A womb is often represented by a symbol (e.g. a room) but sometimes it is itself a symbol.
(1) It may symbolize (new) life; (the potential for) a new development.
(2) It may also symbolize (a longing for) death, a wish to retreat from life’s pains and problems. See also Tomb.
(3) It is just possible that you are reliving your prenatal existence in your mother’s womb. In this case your unconscious may want to draw your attention to the origin of some irrational attitude or behaviour- pattern; or it may be that you are looking for - or being invited to look for - your ‘original’ and true self.
