* ''Series/FatherBrown'': In "The Kembleford Dragon", Father Brown is forced to deliver Pandora's baby when goes into labour unexpectedly: having sent the only other person present to fetch an ambulance. He does a commendable job all things considered, although it is clear he would rather be anywhere else.

* John Ford's ''The Three Godfathers'' has three main male characters, so only one has to go in and help with the birth, which takes place offscreen (though the man [[GoneWithTheWind still knows nothin' about birthin' no babies.]]) Miraculously, the baby is ''still'' named after John Wayne's character. (Well, named after all three of them, but Wayne gets the first name.)

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in a ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' episode where Will befriended a pregnant sportscaster. It looks like the trope will be played straight, but the paramedics get there in time. He does however stick by her to serve as her birthing coach.

If a doctor or midwife shows up, the guy is off the hook, and the birth usually takes place [[WomensMysteries away from the camera]].

* Played straight in ''Film/{{Blankman}}'' when Darryl must help a woman give birth in a stalled elevator. This becomes the first heroic deed that boosts his image in the eyes of the public.
* A variation in ''Film/BigMommasHouse'', when Malcolm must help a woman give birth, but everyone present thinks he is Big Momma, who is in fact a certified midwife but Malcolm of course, is not.

* At least three times on ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'', the lifeguards have to deliver a baby. The first time, a terrified Eddie claims he has no idea what to do (which makes no sense, as lifeguards receive extensive first aid training, which would include childbirth) and it's up to his fellow lifeguard and girlfriend Shauni to help. The second time, Mitch is equally scared, and when telling his mentor, the older man admits he was just as scared when he had to deliver a baby. By the third time, Mitch handles it like a pro.
* Subverted on ''Series/{{ER}}''. Although Benton is a doctor, he's a surgeon, and pretty much panics when he realizes that an obese woman's stomach pains are actually labor--"I haven't delivered a baby since med school!".

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Disaster": When the aforementioned disaster left groups of people trapped in different areas of the ship, it fell to Worf of all people to assist in the delivery of Keiko O'Brien's daughter. It helped cement Worf's character as [[TheComicallySerious lacking]] [[NoSocialSkills in interpersonal skills]] after he yells "Push!" for the umpteenth time, Keiko snaps back with "I ''AM'' pushing!" and his line "You may now give birth." The baby is named Molly Miyaki Worf O'Brien in his honor. The birth gets a CallBack in ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'': when Worf is told that Keiko is having another baby, his immediate reaction is a panicked "Now!?"

He then decides that when it's time for the delivery, he'll be away from the station. Far away. Visiting his parents. On Earth.

* Pauline plays Borovnian Emperor Charles doing this for Empress Deborah (Juliet) for the birth of Diello in ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures''. Juliet enacts contractions and proper breathing pretty convincingly in a semi-ScreamingBirth. Charles is pretty inept, telling his wife to push ''between'' contractions.
