Answer

The risk of recurrence of abruptio placentae is reportedly 4-12%. If the patient has abruptio placentae in 2 consecutive pregnancies, the risk of recurrence rises to 25%.

If the abruption is severe and results in the death of the fetus, the risk of a recurrent abruption and fetal demise is 7%.
