* ''Defied'' with Jessica Drew in the ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'' comic. After checking into a galactic hospital's maternity ward (ironically, she did this to ''avoid'' heroic actions for her baby's sake) a gang of Skrulls broke into the place; her water broke about halfway through it, she had to be given a C-section ''while the bad guys were trying to break into the operating room'', specifically told the doctors not to use any anesthesia (she actually ''intended'' to fight them once they breached the door) and was still able to beat them up after giving birth - covered with blood and other residue, while wearing a torn hospital gown. Not exactly clean at all. (Btw, the baby is okay, and it's a boy.)

* The birth has yet to happen, but this is averted in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2543735/chapters/5655182 The Lovers Left Broken]]'', where it is made clear pregnancy is an ugly process. Sara nearly passes out when she watches a birthing video, though she seems to have an actual phobia of pregnancy so maybe she reacted more strongly than most.
** Also averted with Sara herself, when her father mentions she was born with Lanugo.



* ''Series/CallTheMidwife'' averts this from the very start; not only does it show how long, agonizing and messy birth can be, but when possible they try to get actually new born babies to show on camera.
* ''Series/LifeInPieces'' averts this as well. A large part of Greg and Jen's plot in the pilot dwells on the physical toll childbirth has on a woman's body. As Jen's doctor says, her "tunnel is under construction".
-->'''Greg''': It's that bad, huh?\\
'''Jen''': Do you remember, uh, when the Film/{{Predator}} took off his mask?

* Viciously [[AvertedTrope averted]] in The Old Hunters DLC for ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}''. The final boss, [[spoiler: The Orphan of Kos]] is shown crawling out from its mothers near dead corpse covered in malformed placenta and with various squishing sounds, before it breaks down sobbing and initiates the fight with you.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In "The Egg", when the chick hatches it hatches completely dry. In reality, the newly-hatched chicken would have been wet and taken some time to dry off.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'': ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', when Luke and Leia are born, their heads appear slightly moist but are otherwise clean and dry. Might be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] due to advanced medical technology in the Star Wars 'verse.

* The High Priestess of Aku from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' Season 5 manages to deliver septuplets in a cave with no medical aid or assistance, and still has enough energy left over to give a sermon to her fellow cultists. Most real mothers would have died from such an experience, but for the High Priestess it is just one more step in her plan to kill Jack.

* Justified in ''DragonBallSuper'' when Bulma gives birth. Since Vegeta refuses to leave her side until the baby is born, when the group needs him Whis uses magic to literally teleport the baby out of Bulma's body and leaves behind all of the gunk newborn babies usually are covered in.
