* Justified in ''DragonBallSuper'', as Bulma's husband refused to leave her side until the birth was over. When he was needed for a tournament, Whis literally teleported the baby out of Bulma's body to make the birth last all of twenty seconds.

* One of Louis XIV of France's mistresses, the duchess of Lavallière, was remored to have started giving birth as mass started, and was delivered before it ended; if that's not impressive enough, the place looked like nothing had happened there and the duchess was already gone.

* [[http://www.wowt.com/content/news/Meet-the-proud-parents-of-a-baby-born-at-the-zoo-420264173.html This woman's]] water broke during a trip to the zoo. The family headed for the exit, but didn't get there before the baby showed up. Averted to some extent, Dad is a medical professional and had no problems helping with the birth.

* In ''Series/{{Lost}}'', this happens when Claire gives birth on the island. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:the only doctor, Jack, is tending to a dying Boone.]] Charlie and a non-English speaking Jin have to aid her delivery, on a rock in the jungle.
** Made even more odd by the next morning, where Claire is up and walking around with no limp or pain and carrying her newborn. After a birth with no anesthetic, this is a little bit hard to believe. [[spoiler:This, paired with Locke's sudden ability to walk after years of paralysis, was an early hint that the island itself has [[HealingHands Healing Hands.]]]]
* Played ''very'' straight once again with Claire in sideways (it takes the same amount of time for Claire to give birth that it does for Charlie to get a towel) but it's partially saved because [[spoiler:it's not real anyway... [[DeadAllAlong sideways is purgatory]].]]
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Psych}}'', when Chief Vick's labor takes most of the day, and she is calm and level-headed throughout it. Lassiter, on the other hand...

* ''Series/GeneralHospital''. Carly feels the first twinge of labor pains (there's not even a mention of her water breaking) and immediately declares that there's no time to get to the hospital and that her dinner companion has to deliver the baby right then and there. Even for a second child, that's ridiculously fast. Though this ''was'' a dream sequence. . .

* Played straight in the ''Manga/{{Fullmetal Alchemist}}'' chapter "Miracle at Rush Valley," where [[WrenchWench Winry Rockbell]] delivers a baby based on her family's background in medicine and medical textbooks, before a doctor can even be reached. Edward is less than helpful.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4661757/chapters/11519035 The Monstrous Company of Thorin Oakenshield]] this trope is justified by the fact that the baby is mixed race and the father is a hobbit, thus the baby is much smaller than is normal for the mother's race. As the characters are familiar with DeathByChildbirth they are surprised and delighted at the easy birth.

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge3DawnOfTheDinosaurs'' Ellie gives birth in the middle of a raptor fight, and only Diego, who knows nothing about delivering a baby, is present! Ellie screams and winces, and Peaches comes out already happy and sleepy, in one of the most exaggerated Hollywood births ever.
