A mum who gave birth in a hospital carpark was shocked to be charged a $7000 delivery room fee after the birth.
Paula D'Amore was on her way to hospital when her third baby decided to arrive.
Unable to make it inside the doors of the Florida hospital, Paula instead gave birth to her daughter Daniella with the help of her partner Joe in the car, seven months later, the family were surprised to receive the bill.
Sharing her thoughts on Facebook, Paula said for the hospital to charge that that kind of money when she "delivered outside the hospital is outrageous."
"I give total credit to the nurse who suctioned Daniella when Joe delivered the head, the midwife who finished delivering Daniella," she added.
"But to charge a roundabout charge for seven grand, I think is ridiculous. I wasn't admitted until after I delivered the placenta."
The hospital released a statement in regards to the fee saying: 'The services rendered were the result of a complex delivery due to a precipitous labour and delivery. Our Labour and Delivery Unit provided additional resources by sending three nurses and a nurse midwife to the hospital parking lot to assist the delivery of the baby.'
