* In ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'' [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/comic/64 #64]], "Birthday," one of Darryl and Edna's children breaks out of its shell, looking quite like a fledgling cardinal, at which point they both yell, "Happy Birthday!"

* Played straight in ''Film/KnockedUp''; while it does show a crowning vagina twice, no blood or other liquids or solids are shown.
* Inverted in ''Film/{{Prometheus}}''. [[spoiler:Not only is Shaw's cesarean section far more gruesome than most real childbirths, but [[BodyHorror it's not even a human child]] being birthed in the scene, but an alien parasite that she removes via TraumaticCSection before it can burst out of her.]]
* 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.

* ''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.)

* {{Justified|Trope}} in ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' with the use of the Uterine Replicator, which makes childbirth about as clean and straightforward as it's possible to be, although--as mentioned at one point--it does raise the rather embarrassing danger of a ''mother'' being late to her own child's birth.

[[AC:LiveActionTelevision]]
* Lampshaded in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sbLHbxq3i0 here]], in which a doctor gives a fairly realistic description of what to expect during a birth.
* Lampshaded in ''Series/{{Community}}'' S2, E22: Shirely gives birth in the middle of class. While the trope appears to be averted via Britta's vomiting at the sight of the birth, in the end it's played straight as the birth turns out looking clean and tidy.
* An episode of ''Series/{{Martin}}'' lampshaded this while LeaningOnTheFourthWall. A woman gave birth to what was obviously a baby doll that Martin caught in a catcher's mitt. When Coal asked about the umbilical cord, Martin said "TV babies don't have umbilical cords!".
* The Christmas episode of ''Series/TheVicarOfDibley'' is pretty bad for this: Alice gives birth in the manger while playing Mary, and the kid that results comes out sparkling clean and almost a year old. She gets a little sweaty in the process.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': It was a unique birth, since Darla couldn't give birth naturally and dusted herself, but there's no sign of blood or anything on Connor at all when Angel picks him up. Granted, it was raining, but still...
* Played straight in ''Series/{{Glee}}'', where Quinn gets a ScreamingBirth scene set to "Bohemian Rhapsody."

* Played straight in an episode of ''Series/{{Taxi}}'' where Alex recounted - via flashback - how he delivered a customer's baby; said baby was spotlessly clean and looked almost one year old. (Granted, this was in the late 70s.)
