In brief: ~6%

Parent to child risk can best be calculated with a thorough review of the family tree and input from both sides of the family.
A single affected patent will have ~6% risk per pregnancy if the other parent is not affected. Be aware that any pregnancy has some risk of a surprise at dellivery. A consultation with a genetic counselor could review all your risks.
