It seems to be a law of TV and film land, that any hostage situation will include at least one [[ObviousPregnancy heavily pregnant woman]]. This can either be used to show how inhuman the hostage takers are by having them [[KickTheDog use her as greater leverage]], or to show them in a better light by [[PetTheDog having them treat her with compassion]]. If she's more than eight months, she'll probably go into labor, and give birth to a healthy baby with the help of a nearby know-it-all kid, [[ChekhovsHobby med-school dropout]] or, if they're really lucky, an off-duty nurse]]. Or maybe even [[DeliveryGuy one of the hostage takers]]. The PanickyExpectantFather will rarely be held hostage with her, and may even be with the police, constantly telling them, "My Wife's in there!".
