In brief: Hard to assess

CCHD is a group of conditions with variable effect on basic health.
The risk of any pregnancy can best be determined by your treatment team, who has access to your records/testing.You would also want to consult with a geneticist. The risk of a having a baby with a heart defect is at least 4%,10% if both parents have any form of CHD.It may be higher if you have a gene based syndrome.

Definitely depends on your exact diagnosis of congenital heart disease, treatment or corrective surgery performed so far, and many other variables.
You definitely need to seek the counsel of a cardiologist with expertise/additional training in adult congenital heart disease when planning to have a family.
