* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', Arnold finds in his father's diary that when his father and one friend were taking his mother to the village and suddenly get caught in a ''volcano eruption'', Stella went into labor. Luckly they found shelter in an ancient ruins.
** This actually would have been a plot point in the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen unmade]] [[TheMovie Jungle movie]]: apparently the eruption stopped right after Arnold was born, so the natives his parents were staying with believe him to be some sort of godlike figure.

* Not really a "maternity" crisis, since in this case the birth is an egg hatching, but seen in the third book of the {{Temeraire}} series. Of all the times for a baby dragon to hatch, it would have to be just as the cast is on the run through enemy territory with almost no food, right?

* ''Series/BellaAndTheBulldogs'': It's bad enough that the Bulldogs' playoff game is moved to the same day as Pepper's mom's baby shower, which Bella said she'd attend. No problem, they just smush all the activities into half the time and get out with plenty of time to spare. Cue Pepper's mom going into labor...with her husband fishing at the lake...and only Bella, a hyperventilating Pepper, and a fainting Sophie there to help her. And the only one not in labor with even a driving permit is Bella...meaning a 15-year-old girl who's had one ("technically one and a half") driving lesson is driving a woman in labor to the hospital...''and'' trying to finally get to the playoff game.

* Justified in ''Literature/TheBible'' - the stress of hearing that her husband died in battle and the Ark of the Covenant was lost is enough to not only [[DeathByFallingOver kill the already very old High Priest Eli]], but send his daughter-in-law into labor.

* Subverted in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. Angharad clutches her stomach and gasps in pain while hiding from the Rock Riders, but it turns out the baby was just squirming and kicking painfully. A brief shot of her bare stomach during the ensuing chase shows him kicking so hard that her skin stretches.
