Latent content and manifest content are two concepts introduced by Sigmuend Freud to help people understand the meaning of their dreams.

Latent content is the hidden, inferred part of the dream that people cannot usually recall but shows the true meaning of the dream.
I stumbled on your page a couple weeks ago. I’ve been coping with post partum depression for the past few months.
