In brief: 15 %

If you had a preeclampsia previously you are more prone to develop it again, compared to a mother who didn't have preeclampsia before.

In brief: 15 % recurrance

If you have pre-eclampsia with a pregnancy, the risk is about 15% for the next period.
After having pre-eclampsia the second time, then the risk with the next pregnancy would be about 50%.
