* 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.

* On ''MyNameIsEarl,'' Joy goes into labor with the baby she's surrogating for Liberty and Ray-Ray while Earl's old friend Frank holds her [[PregnantHostage hostage]] in her own [[spoiler: formerly Frank's]] trailer and makes her move the stove to get the money he hid behind it several years ago.
* ''Saving Hope'': [[spoiler: Alex]] goes into labor while doing her surgical boards. Since it would be impossible to get them rescheduled and she can't imagine doing another year as a resident while being a new mother, she manages to finish the oral exam before rushing off to the hospital. Fortunately, Maggie leaves before the end of her exam to help; it's a good thing, too, since there are some complications which Maggie, as an OB/GYN resident, is uniquely qualified to handle.

* In an episode of ''FamilyGuy'', Peter gets into an altercation with a scruffy-looking individual, and punches that person in the face. Everyone is horrified and gives Peter a WhatTheHellHero for [[WouldHitAGirl hitting a woman]], although Peter doesn't believe them. It turns out that the person Peter punched really ''was'' a woman, and pregnant, because she went into labor right afterward.
