->"Okay- now ''push!'' PUSH! Keep pushing... and... we're good! Life signs are holding steady. He's going to be fine. Congratulations, Megatron-- It's a ''superwarrior''.
-->'''Rossum''' creating a Phase-Sixer, ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''

A sub-trope of DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything, this is a scene where someone ([[GenderFlip usually a man]], though cases of MisterSeahorse don't count) goes through all the motions of a ScreamingBirth, complete with screams of "you did this to me" and someone on hand to give encouragement being common. But what's really going on is something much more [[FelonyMisdemeanor mundane]] or [[PlayedForLaughs ridiculous]].

Occasionally the victim will simply be the PanickyExpectantFather himself, struggling to get through the agony of [[CloserToEarth his wife]] crushing his hand to cope with her own pain.

* Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt features [[ButtMonkey Brief]] [[{{Squick}} passing a miniature Panty and Stocking through his digestive system]]. Garterbelt decides to treat the process as if it were a birth, stirrups and all.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'' FanFic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5959382/1/Pride_Lands_Generations Pride Lands: Generations]]'', although there is no intercut with the actual birth scene, this trope is implied--the expectant mother begins giving birth, the lionesses are quickly summoned to take her to the birthing den...only to switch to Dhahabu and his elephant friend helping break down the river dam created by the BigBad, complete with "One, two, three, ''PUSH''!" [[SubvertedTrope Then the real birth scene is shown]] (albeit mostly off-screen and without graphic detail).

[[folder: Film ]]

* In ''Film/{{Evolution}}'', when the doctors have to get the alien insect that cut it's way into Harry's body by going in through the colon and pulling it out, and the scene plays out in this way.
* In ''{{Blankman}}'', Blankman and his cousin Kevin help a woman trapped in an elevator to give birth. All three are screaming loudly as this happens, though. The woman, for obvious reasons, Kevin, because when he offered his hand to the woman, she grabbed his crotch instead and squeezed as hard as she could, and Blankman because, well... he's a bit of a dork who doesn't really know what's going on.

* In one episode of ''TheITCrowd'', Moss climbs into a crane machine to get an iPhone that was dropped in but gets stuck. Jen manages to use the crane to get the iPhone, but Moss has to try moving to the side to let the iPhone slip through. When it finally gets out Moss exclaims "it's beautiful."
* ''{{Friends}}'' [[BodyHorror rather justifiably]] does this with Joey's passing a kidney stone, and for extra laughs directly juxtaposes it with Phoebe's actual labour in the same hospital.
** TruthInTelevision in this case. Many women who have given birth and also passed a kidney stone will tell you, the kidney stone is the more painful experience.
* In ''TrueBlood'', the scene where Jason has to get blood drained from his [[{{Squick}} dangerously engorged penis]] is staged very much like a scene of a woman in a hospital giving birth.
* In ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', this happens when Ben gets kidney stones. When Leslie and his sister ask what's wrong, he says that he's giving birth.
* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', Dr. Phlox is putting Malcolm through some physical therapy for a leg injury, and it looks a lot like a birth scene, including Dr. Phlox telling Malcolm to push.

* In the episode of ''{{Futurama}}'' when the Planet Express crew brew some beer inside of Bender, the whole thing is an extended pregnancy metaphor (right down to the fermentation process causing his belly to expand). So naturally, the scene where they bottle the beer is just like this.
-->'''Bender:''' I think I'll call it Benderbrau if it's an ale, or Botweiser if it's a lager...
* In the ''PinkyAndTheBrain'' episode "Brinky", The Brain attempts to clone himself, which almost works until Pinky's DNA (from a clipped toenail) accidentally gets combined with Brain's, thus essentially making them parents of the resulting clone (and Pinky calling himself the clone's "mommy"). Most of the dialogue during the cloning process is scripted like an actual birth: for example, when the door on the cloning machine won't close (which is the reason Pinky's DNA is even in there), the Brain tells Pinky to help him "push", complete with Pinky doing Lamaze breathing.
* In ''IceAge: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs'', Ellie is giving birth while Diego fights off some raptors trying to kill her. At one point Diego is the one appearing to go through labor pains, and then the camera pulls back to show him pushing a raptor off a ledge. She's telling him to push, he claims that she has no idea what he's going through, and then there's a moment of silence as he processes what he just said before sheepishly apologizing.
* On ''TheClevelandShow,'' Junior accidentally drinks a glass of water containing Rallo's pet goldfish, swallowing it whole. The two expect him to eventually "pass" it without incident and spend the next few days acting like he's pregnant. When he actually goes to the bathroom, RealityEnsues and the fish is metaphorically stillborn.
* A second-season episode of UglyAmericans presents Mark's oversized soul in this manner, complete with Randall acting like a PanickyExpectantFather.
