Locke's mom didn't die giving birth. However, she does share her name with Ben's mom and both babies were premature. There's a thread around here somewhere suggesting they're the same person.

Plus:

Benjamin, was the twelfth and youngest son of Jacob. His mother was Rachel, Jacob's wife. Benjamin was born during the journey that Jacob and his family took from Padan Aram to Canaan. His mother Rachel named him "Ben-oni," meaning "Son of my sorrow," before she died during the childbirth, but Jacob called him Benjamin. Joseph, Benjamin's brother was sold into slavery by his other brothers.

Wonder who Ben's "special" brother might be?

Wait, really? How do you / we know this, did I miss that?
Is this from Lost or a literary / biblical / philosophical parallel?

D.  All of the above.

Did we learn that in the Ben centric episode a few ago?
I'm remembering potential insinuations, but not specifics?
