* Britney Spears's pregnant friend falls down some stairs and loses her baby in ''[[Film/{{Crossroads 2002}} Crossroads]]''. Slightly unusual in that she had (some semblance of) a plan to raise it and was 6 or 7 months pregnant, making it technically a stillbirth (the line is at about five and a half months).

* Julia got pregnant on ''Series/{{Party of Five}}'' and was going to have an abortion, but miscarried before she got to the clinic.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ChicagoMed'': April gets pregnant with her relatively new boyfriend Tate's baby. The two quickly become engaged and seem happy to start their family, but have constant fights about whether or not April should be working and how her TB medications affect the baby. Ultimately, April goes to an ultrasound and there is no fetal heartbeat. She and Tate are both crushed and eventually break up since Tate can't get over the idea that her working contributed to the miscarriage and he never wanted a working wife anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* For a series so heavily concerned with childbirth and the ways it affects people's lives, and tending towards neat endings, Series/CallTheMidwife could be forgiven for employing this a lot more but in fact it indulges seldom. However one plot line saw a young man's university-place/marrying-his-knocked-up-girlfriend effectively solved by her miscarrying.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Ollie thinks this happened to a girl he knocked up several years before the start of the show; he even comments on how lucky he was to dodge the baby bullet. In actuality, Moira paid the girl $2 million to lie about losing the baby, move away, and never contact Ollie again.
