Incidentally, dying in childbirth is [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath not pretty at all]]. Many such stories have a beautiful death that just results in the mother kissing her husband and baby goodbye. Writers often forget about the screaming, the bleeding, the fever, and the way that this agony could go on for ''days'', and such writers either DidNotDoTheResearch or just can't stomach it. It should be noted that some deaths in childbirth are pretty fast - a woman with uterine atony can hemorrhage to death in minutes without emergency medical intervention, but that's a ''lot'' of blood.

Incidentally, dying in childbirth is [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath no fun at all]]. Stories that neglect to mention fever, screaming, blood, and agony that lasts hours (or even days) were probably written by the childless or by those with no medical knowledge. A few examples are included here. It should be noted that some deaths in childbirth do occur much more quickly than that--a woman with uterine atony can hemorrhage to death in minutes without emergency medical intervention.

* Female spotted hyenas have...unusual genitals. Their labia are fused together into a pseudoscrotum, and the clitoris is enlarged and mainly external, forming a pseudopenis. They give birth through the pseudopenis, so it's not uncommon for cubs to get stuck, and for hyenas to die in the process. (This is especially true for those giving birth to their first litter.)

* In ''WebAnimation/RetardedAnimalBabies'', Puppy's mother died giving birth to him (he was the last puppy out of a huge litter). His father SeanConnery (yes really) immediately accuses him of murdering her. Puppy had suppressed this memory for years and didn't take it well at all when it resurfaced. Hamster assumes this is Puppy's FreudianExcuse for his AnythingThatMoves behavior--he lacked a maternal role model growing up. It's so pitiful that even the woman he was harassing earlier doesn't have the heart to have him thrown out of the bar.

Notably in fiction the mother might not stand a chance of living through the childbirth owing to the nature of the child's father being something other [[HumanMomNonHumanDad "then human"]] .

* Ofelia's half-brother kills his mother during labor in ''Film/PansLabyrinth''--foreshadowed ahead of time as Carmen's having a ''very'' difficult pregnancy. She starts the movie heavily pregnant, is increasingly fragile as the movie goes on, and eventually ''suffers a hemorrhage'' [[AdultFear with only Ofelia there to look for help.]] By that point she becomes bedridden, and when she finally goes into labor, she's hanging by a thread. The cruel part is that she COULD have survived with some help, but her new husband Captain Vidal forces the doctor not to because it's a waste of medicine since [[HeirClubForMen their baby is a boy and that's all he cares about.]]

** In the added backstory in the NintendoDS version of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'', Cecil's mother died giving birth to him. For Cecil's elder brother Theodor, her death combined with Kluya's death just shortly earlier is what allows Zemus to gain control of Theodor and turn him into Golbez.
