* Played with in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', as the central plot features Max driving an oil-rig where two of the group of five runaway women are pregnant, and they end up becoming ''his'' captors after he first threatens them with a gun and forces them to help him drive the rig. The women are the private harem of the BigBad, meaning they're carrying his sons. This makes his soldiers reluctant to hurt them.

* Zig-zag: The ''PunkyBrewster'' episode "Ouch!" starts off dealing with the guilt Cherie feels for causing Punky to break her leg. At the hospital, Cherie is in a stalled elevator with a pregnant woman going into labor. Cherie winds up delivering the baby herself, and as the elevator car is finally repaired, she is crying hysterically over what she did and went through.

Thankfully, Natsu manages to save both (and giving the councilor a well-deserved deck to the head for good measure).
