* ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' had the were-bull Apis, who were midwives and matchmakers, had a ritual to create a baby, grown inside the earth. While it would work on any two parents, provided both were at one point capable of siring children, the stereotype of its use was that if a woman died young, her widowed husband would take a lock of her hair to the Apis, so they could create the baby she would have borne.
