* Non-professional-woman subversion: Daphne in ''{{Nation}}.''
* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]]'' by LoisMcMasterBujold, Sergeant Bothari acts as midwife to Lady Alys Vorpatril for the birth of Ivan. Unusually well justified, in that the others present have never attended a birth (well, apart from Cordelia, but she was the patient having the C-section at the time), and his mother was a midwife/prostitute who used to take him along on her rounds.

* ''ComicBook/LesTuniquesBleues'': A Union force is charged with defending a crossing from Confederates, with a refugee convoy asking the Union for protection. One of the women goes into labor, and Sergeant Chesterfield is forced into this role, much to his horror. The woman's screams cause the Confederates to think the Union is torturing women, but their heroic momentum runs out when they're shushed by the soldiery crowding around the tent. The baby is delivered, everyone returns to their side... and simultaneously agree that attacking/defending would be stupid and pointless.

* In one episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', a pregnant woman who has been kidnapped by her ex-husband has been found by Elliott. She is scheduled for a C-section because the placenta formed over her cervix (meaning the baby would otherwise burst through it a la ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' and cause her to bleed to death). Elliott calls an ambulance, but the baby is coming too quickly. He delivers the baby (using knowledge gained from being present at the births of each of his own children), but [[DeathByChildbirth the mother does not survive.]]

* Pictured above: In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold's'' episode "The Journal" has Arnold's father Miles in the role, when his wife/Arnold's mom Stella is forced to have her son in an abandoned San Lorenzo temple while lava from a nearby erupting volcano flows past. Understandably, poor Stella is screaming her head off and poor Miles can barely hold 'self from panicking.

Whoever he is, he's treated as a hero for having done this (even though all he did was hold her hand and tell her to push, and maybe "catch" the baby as it's born), and tends to be given more attention than even the mother. If he's not the father, he might be given impromptu "father figure" status (especially if there's no actual father to feel threatened about this), and be the first to proudly hold the baby while standing at the beaming mother's bedside. The baby might even be [[LastMinuteBabyNaming named after him]].

* In ''Series/Everybody Loves Raymond'': New York cops are legendary for having seen just about everything and for being able to cope with just about anything. Until Sergeant Robert Barone tries to take charge of his sister-in-law's pregnancy scare and attempts to run her into hospital. He succeeds in getting stuck in a traffic jam on Queensboro Bridge and, faced with delivering Debra's baby, flounders terribly. Ray is no help. Fortunately for Sergeant Barone, who panics completely, it's a false alarm.
