216. She should be worried, though.
Ob/Gyns have some of the highest malpractice insurance rates in the profession. My husband's an internist, so his rates aren't horrible (that, and we live in Michigan, where there are lower rates anyway), but the Ob/Gyn who helped me deliver our daughter has left the profession because of it. Their practice hadn't been sued recently, he'd never been sued, and his cost went from $50K one year to $100K the next. FPs who deliver babies are subject to the same high rates, and malpractice insurance companies are known to randomly raise rates if they think a doctor's a higher risk than they'd thought. She'd better hope her carrier doesn't read the paper.
