[Something to this effect seen in alt.urban.legends] Urban Legend: Pregnant women caught in elevators during power outages always go into labor for some reason; could be stress, could be just the quiet dark setting, could be something else. The birth rate jumped in a city when the power went out for a day, "elevator babies" being born all over the city. Ever since then, whenever the power goes out in buildings, a workman always opens the hatch on the top of the elevator and asks "Are there any pregnant women in there?" To which the standard reply is: "No; we've only been stuck in here half an hour."
