{{Exactly What It Says on the Tin}}: a baby is born while the mother is stuck in a stalled elevator (births in the vehicle on route to the hospital also count towards this trope). Probably the most [[UncomfortableElevatorMoment uncomfortable of elevator moments]]. A classic SitCom scenario, especially when the baby has to be [[DeliveryGuy delivered by a squeamish and totally unqualified male lead]]. Cue the inevitable {{Crowning Moment of Heartwarming}}.

* The 'giving birth in a taxi' variation happens in an episode of ''{{Frasier}}''. However, in something of a variation it's the taxi driver's baby, not a passengers. Also, the two highly educated persons who [[NotThatKindOfDoctor added a doctor]] in front of their names were useless, while the retired police officer helped her through the crisis.
