I've been reading Victorian-age books to my DD and I've found the same thing! I think it was due to the high infant mortality of the age. Most of the books mention the death of children, possibly because many children would have had a sibling or a friend die at some stage so it would have been a normal part of life.
I had to give up reading The Water Babies to my daughter. I remembered it fondly from my childhood, but reading it now the first third of the book deals with how often the poor chimney sweep is beaten constantly by his master (as a humorous thing!) and then thinly-veiled allegories of children drowning and becoming water babies. It's so depressing!

I read the other day that in the original sleeping beauty the while the princess was in a coma she was raped by a king and woke while giving birth. There are more that I have heard but can't remember them but still that is kind of messed up.
