    Throughout television history, there have been many characters that have given birth in a special episode. Some series give us great birthing episodes (great writing, acting, etc.), and some don’t.

    So, what are some of the best birthing episodes?

    Of course, one of the most popular birthing episodes of recent TV was Rachel’s birth in Friends. Jennifer Aniston won an Emmy for that episode.

    Another great episode where a character gives birth, that many people don’t talk about, is Barbara Jean’s birth in the first season of Reba. It was a great acting showcase for Melissa Peterman, and featured great writing and acting. It was a really great birthing episode that many people don’t talk about.

    Well the one that comes to mind first for me is Murphy Brown when Murphy gives birth.

    Helen Hunt on Mad About You was also great and of course, Lucy Ricardo!

    Friends did three great birthing episodes: Rachel’s, Phoebe’s, and Carol’s.

    On LOST, it felt like claire gave birth to aaron like seven time by the end of the show, lol. But I loved the second time when sawyer sees kate helping to deliver aaron in the middle of the jungle when they are time traveling. I think the episode was called the little prince, i know the birth wasnt the center plot of the episode but to me it was the most memorable, flash back to season 1.

    The episode when phoebe give birth to the triples on friend was hilarious, “i am here to have my brothers babies” “i think he is just stealing my thunder” (on joey having symphaty pains)  “chandler is a girl”
     
    One more i really liked was in the new adventures of old christine, having new christine trying to stay pregnant to avoid her baby sharing a birthday with old christine was hilarious.

    All of those Aaron births from Claire were great for different reasons.

    This thread is gross.

    The first season Glee episode, ‘Journey’ was an especially good one, but the birthing scene featuring Quinn ( Diannna Agron)
     was phenomenal. Juxtaposted with Vocal Adrenlaines epic performance of Bohemain Rhapsody, Dianna Agron did a fantastic job and the whole episode was very well done, although the birthing scene wasn’t a major part of it.

    Phoebe giving birth to the triplets is one of my favorite episodes of friends.

    Carol’s labor on ER was a very good one, too.

    If we’re not talking specifically about characters giving birth, I cant forget to mention Love’s Labor Lost, from season 1. The absolutely best (and saddest) birthing episode.

    Phoebe and Rachel had fantastic birthing episodes, with the hospital antics, both before and after the actual births… I think the award for the worst birth episode/arc in the history of TV goes to Modern Family… I mean talk about a missed opportunity!

    I agree with dude93, Modern Family really did not capatlize on the sheer potential of having Sofia Vegera play pregnant. It was a massie missed oppurtunity.

    It’s like they didn’t even give two sh!ts about the whole plot line… I mean, there was no build up, no getting to the hospital with a potential Gloria screaming at Jay with Manny in the back of the car, no build up of the other characters getting to the hospital… I mean they could’ve filled one or two episodes with this kind of stuff… Then the aftermath, etc., etc. They did the whole birth in half a minute, and that was it! Aaarrgghh. What are these writers on these days?

    Everyone who mentions Lost mentions “Do No Harm” and/or “The Little Prince,” but to me, “Ji Yeon” is far more powerful, especially as a single episode that centered around the best couple on the show (that includes Desmond and Penny.) Gosh, it’s such an electrifying hour of television.
