Pregnants are one of the larger breeds of Necromorphs . They are named as such due to the enormous sac that extrudes from their abdomens, the contents of which are other, smaller forms of Necromorphs which burst forth when the sac is damaged.

Pregnants appear to be created by a single human corpse, albeit one that has been radically mutated to a great extent.

The skull's lower jaw has been detached, and what appear to be tentacles hang loose from the mouth, giving the head a slight resemblance to that of a Divider .

The creature sports two improvised arms coming out from its back, each ending in a large bone scythe, used to slash and rend an opponent in the same manner as Slashers do. The host's human arms, are now fused onto the massive sac that has developed on the torso. This sac, the Pregnant's distinctive characteristic, is unique, in that it actually hosts other smaller forms of Necromorphs inside it. From the sheer size of it, it is obvious that this is a heavy structure, further emphasized by the fact that it is hold into position by cordage of flesh. According to X-rays of patients, the sac is the first necromorphic structure developed on the human body that is going to turn into a Pregnant. When heavily damaged, Pregnants tend to claw open their own abdominal sacs in order to release their spawn, in an effort to ensure their victim's demise. If anything, this kind of behavior shows that the creature is aware of its physical condition.

Their sacs mainly host Swarmers but sometimes they may carry deadlier payloads of creatures including Lurkers as well as the small creatures composed of miscellaneous body parts, identical to those that come from Dividers.

To accommodate its great weight, the Pregnant's legs have become short, in order to balance the creature by lowering its center of mass, and the overall leg structure has been altered. As a result, although their weight hinders their speed, they can move at a brisk enough pace to out-walk their target when they are determined.

Pregnants, unlike most Necromorphs, do not commonly travel in packs, however they do prefer the company of other Necromorphs and, unlike the Lurkers, they can really wreak havoc when they have Slashers or other Necromorph forms accompanying them.
