There are a lot of factors that go into whether you will develop preeclampsia again. Generally, yes, the less severe your preeclampsia experience (with HELLP being a much more severe variant of the disease even in its milder forms), the more likely you are to develop it in a future pregnancy. But, that's no guarantee either way. Some women with no history of PE may develop it in a later pregnancy, and some women with HELLP may only have it in a first pregnancy. Generally though, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist would watch you extra carefully if you had experienced HELLP in one or more than one pregnancies. Same with preeclampsia.
