* This is an ever-increasing concern in the developed world, as more and more bacteria become resistant to more and more antibiotics, such as ones that are given shortly before, during, or after childbirth to prevent infections. This may also make ''any'' surgery, including C-sections (which ''do'' save the lives of women who might otherwise die in childbirth) increasingly risky, or even impossible. We very well could see a return to Victorian-era rates of maternal and infant mortality ''in our lifetimes'' if the issue of antibiotic resistance is not addressed ''soon''.

* A rather unusual variant occurs in ''Franchise/FatalFrame V'': giving birth to a half-ghost Shadowborn severely reduces the mother's lifespan down to a few years. This is what Miku's fate will be since her daugher's a Shadowborn, and it's even hinted [[spoiler: that she's DeadAllAlong, despite her reunion with Miu, in one of the endings.]]

* Creator/RichardWagner's operatic tetralogy ''Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung'' has this in store for Sieglinde, who dies as she gives birth to the hero Siegfried, [[TwinCest her incestuous child]] with her already dead twin brother Siegmund.

* ''VideoGame/{{Utawarerumono}}'': Yuzuha dies either in childbirth or shortly afterward, leaving behind Hakuoro's daughter, Kuon. This is unsurprising, given her [[IllGirl chronically poor health]], but she desperately wanted to leave behind proof that she had lived. Kuon goes on to become a major protagonist in the next two games.

* ''Literature/SleepingBeauties'': This fate befalls Tiffany while giving birth to her son Andy, due to a number of factors working against her. First, they are in [[DreamLand ''Our Place'']] with no professional hospitals. Second, she's an ex-junkie. Third, the baby is a breech birth and has to be turned around inside Tiffany's womb first. And finally, the women helping her are forced to use a knife to give the baby enough room.

** In ancient Greece, marriage for women (or, really, girls) was often portrayed as a form of death, because chances were that she would die in childbirth before too long. This association is thought to lie at the heart of the myth of the abduction of Persephone by Hades.
