There were four major birth scenes over 10 seasons of Friends. And amazingly, three of those involved pregnancies that would have almost certainly resulted in C-sections in real life, but the 'C-word' was never once mentioned. First, Phoebe gave birth to triplets—triplets!—vaginally. It’s not impossible, but almost unheard of in American hospitals. In real life, she would have been considered high-risk, on bed rest for the last few weeks, with a planned surgery—certainly not handed off to whichever random Fonzie-obsessed doctor was on call. Then after a fairly realistic depiction of Rachel going through labor in season 8, her doctor realizes at the very last minute that the baby is breech (tushie first). Most doctors would have realized this well before the pushing stage and either tried to turn the baby or insisted on a C-section. Then in the final season, there is the bizarre moment when the doctor doesn’t mention until after the first baby has been born that Erica (the birth mom to Chandler and Monica’s babies) is having twins! Wait, what??
