In brief: About 1 in 16

Roughly 1 in 4 pregnancies ends sadly.
So one in 1/4v1/4=1/16. A medical school classmate's wife had 4 pregnancies end too early. They later had 4 healthy kids.

In brief: Depends %

Depends entirely on the reason for the stillbirth.
Things like cord accidents will not recur. Certain conditions such as thrombophilias will recur.
