* During the MiddleAges, it was not uncommon for royal and noble women to hire wet nurses to feed their babies, so that they could return to fertility faster. It was important for upper-class women to have many children, because there was a good chance that some of them would not reach adulthood...but ''someone'' was needed to [[HeirClubForMen carry on the family name and inherit wealth and titles]].

* Implied among the [[MeaningfulName Death Corp of Krieg]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. It is not clear if the "vitae wombs" they use are {{Uterine Replicator}}s or a method of modifying actual human females to drastically increase fertility, but it is considered "abhorrent" {{in-universe}} and only barely tolerated. The end result supports a society that does nothing but crank out DeathSeeker GasMaskMooks by the million.

Later, when Charles was brought back as a main character, he seemed to have dropped this plan and instead was concentrating on rebuilding society and uniting the surviving people.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ramsay Bolton's [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy, jealous mistress]] catches [[spoiler: Sansa]] trying to escape and implies that he will dismember her to the point of leaving her an immobile quadriplegic who can't escape again, but fulfill the only reasons Ramsay keeps her around: to birth legitimate children, and pacify the North by technically remaining married to House [[spoiler: Stark]]. Have I mentioned [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Ramsay might actually do that]]?

* The page quote originates from a bit of flavor text you can find in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', and stems from both the Nazi's own reputed "breeding program", and fits the German belief of the time that a woman should [[StayInTheKitchen occupy herself with Kitchen, Kurche unt Kinder]] -- that is, Kitchen, Church, and Child-rearing. Obersturmbanfuhrer Frau Engel also mentions at one point that she's served the Reich as a good German woman should be birthing half a dozen "Aryan" children for it.
