Birthdays are most common in the month of September in many countries. Several factors and studies are present surrounding this phenomenon. One concept suggests that if one counts back nine months from September, one lands in December, a time when people have winter festivities and generally remain indoors. People often take vacations and spend more intimate time with their partners, which explains the high conception rate at this time.

Further, biology and evolution suggest that humans have evolved to favor winter conception. Babies conceived during winter months would be born around early fall, when food resources are abundant, predicting a better survival rate for both the baby and mother.

If someone is expecting a child or knows someone due to give birth in September, the anticipation and excitement surrounding this event can lead to dreams about childbirth. Pregnancy and impending parenthood are major life events that can occupy a person’s thoughts and dreams.

  • You have started a new phase of your life, which is exciting and joyful.
  • It can represent your childlike and innocent self.
  • This symbolizes your ability to eliminate old habits of thinking and behaving.
  • It denotes a sign of growth and prosperity.
  • It can also represent your inherent fears and insecurities.
  • You lack the confidence to remove the hurdles, making you more vulnerable and feeble.
