* ''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.

* In ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'', Takeshi Sendoh's grandmother explains to Fujii's assistant [[HotScoop Mari Iizuka]] that her daughter-in-law died few after giving birth to him. It's not clear if Mrs. Sendoh died as a direct consequence of giving birth or it was just a coincidence, though.

* In ''Literture/CharlottesWeb'', Charlotte's DeathByNewberyMedal is a variation on this, as she dies two days after making her egg sac and laying her 514 eggs. Doubles as death from old age, since this is the natural end of a female barn spider's life cycle.
