To dream that you are laboring suggests that your goals will take a lot of hard work to accomplish.
If you are a woman and dream that you are in labor indicates your desire to be pregnant and to start a family. To experience or feel pre-term labor pains or Braxton Hicks contractions in your dream indicate the anticipation of hard work ahead. If you are actually pregnant, then the dream serves as a rehearsal for the actual birth. The dream is trying to prepare you for labor and proper breathing.
To dream that someone goes into labor prematurely implies that you need to be better prepared for unexpected challenges that may come your way.
