In brief: 10-25 %
Placental abruption, or the separation of the placenta from its site of implantation before the delivery of the fetus, averages 1 in 200 deliveries.
Once a woman has suffered an abruption, the risk in a future pregnancy increases as much as 10-25%. Risk factors for abruption include maternal age, cigarette smoking, coexisting hypertension, preeclampsia and premature rupture of membranes.

In brief: Abruption
First of all depends what caused in in the first place(drugs, accidents, high blood pressure) .
If no identifiable cause you are still at increased risk for placenta abruption. The risk is higher than 1 %.What you can do is avoid potential causes for abruption, keep your appointments and follow your doctor advices:).
