** A metaphorical example is found in "Comfortably Numb". After crossing the DespairEventHorizon and having a FreakOut for the last half a dozen songs or so, Pink gets injected with drugs so that he can go perform his next show. It's in this moment where the "worms" eat into his brain and his delusions (or maybe not) of being Neo-Nazi begin.

* ''Film/BlueLagoon'': Immediately after witnessing a native being ritually sacrificed in the sacred place, Richard runs back to find Emmeline. He finds her wailing from labor pains.

Within an episode (or chapter or scene), someone is born or a pregnancy is revealed and someone else dies, emphasizing the cycle of life. A supertrope of DeathByChildbirth, but includes all the cases where the death is ''not'' the mother. Also a form of IronicJuxtaposition. Compare BabiesEverAfter, DeadGuyJunior, SomeoneToRememberHimBy, ComingAndGoing (where someone might be ''conceived''). ThePhoenix is a symbol of the motif.
