BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) – A South Florida mother says she’s being charged thousands of dollars in delivery charges even though she gave birth in a car in the hospital parking lot.
Paula D’Amore tells WSVN-TV that wasn’t how she expected to deliver her daughter, Daniella, who was born in the fire lane at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
D’Amore’s husband caught the baby’s head as nurses ran out of the hospital to help with the rest of the delivery.
Seven months later, the hospital sent D’Amore a bill for $7,000, which is the full delivery fee. She says she planned for the birthing costs prior to delivery but since she never made it to the delivery room, she thought the hospital would adjust her bill.
The hospital did not immediately comment on the case.
