** Narrowly averted by Margaret Beaufort, the mother of Henry VII. And when we say narrowly... she was twelve years old, the youngest age at which a husband was allowed to have sex with his wife by English law of the time, and small and slight for her age, she had a horrifically difficult labour, and she though she lived a fairly long life with a further two marriages, she never bore another child.

And when we say narrowly... she was twelve years old, the youngest age at which a husband was allowed to have sex with his wife by English law of the time, and small and slight for her age, she had a horrifically difficult labour, labour which no doubt caused permanent damage, and she though she lived a fairly long life with a further two marriages, she never bore another child.

Added DiffLines:

* Happened to Judy's mother in ''FanFic/{{Shadowchasers}}''; whether this had anything to do with her father [[InterspeciesRomance being a dragon]] is not known, but her raised her alone until, tragically, he was killed by an evil dragon [[TearJerker with his daughter watching.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'',
** This tends to happen to mortals who are impregnated by fiends, although some manage to survive. (For instance, the most famous cambion is Iuz the Old, the son of Graz'zt and the sorceress Iggwilv; to date, Iggwilv still lives. Another notorious cambion was Orcus' servant Ely Cromlich, whose mother survived long enough to name him, at least.)
** There are ghastly stories about hags that state they can magically switch their own unborn infants with those of human females; a victim who brings the child to term is slain by the had-child. (''Van Richten's Guide to Witches'' claims that this is an in-universe UrbanLegend.)

* Played with [[WhatAnIdiot in a completely stupid way]] in the LostForever ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' comic ''Future of Despair''. [[spoiler: Panne would have survived giving birth to her and Henry's son Yarne just fine... had she not given into [[{{fanon}} never mentioned in canon]] "irresistible Taguel instincts" and run away from the castle she and Henry were staying in ''[[TooDumbToLive to give birth alone in the woods and in Taguel form]]''. That caused her to be mistaken as a beast by two hunters who turned into a HumanPincushion in the spot--but she still "lived" enough to (off screen) finish giving birth and telling her accidental killers to hand the baby to the father.]]

May be a set up for the WickedStepmother or PromotionToParent. If someone ''other'' than the mother or baby dies, it's BirthDeathJuxtaposition.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'', [[spoiler: Anri the Hero's beloved Princess Artemis [[StarCrossedLovers not only couldn't marry him]] [[UptownGirl because he was a commoner]], but fell victim to this trope when she brought her and Duke Cartas' child to the world. The poor woman's last words were a curse on the titular [[MacGuffin Fire Emblem]], which she dubbed '[[LoveHurts the end of war, but also the end of love]]'.]]
