The birth of a baby is a miracle of life. After the intense hours of labour, everyone gathers around to see the newest member of the story, gushing about hoe beautiful the baby is and how much everyone loves it. In others words, it can end up being a pretty boring and overly-fluffy scene. Not to mention that the birth process itself can be pretty [[Squick squicky]]. 

Authors work around this by adding tension to the birth scene. More specifically, they decide to have their characters give birth in very dangerous or climatic situations that put the new mother and child in immediate danger at their most vulnerable time. It seems to be some unspoken rule that every mother must go into labour in the most inconvenient times and places.

Named after a scene from [Warrior Cats]] where a character goes into labour during a storm. May overlap with [[
