I have had HELLP twice now. My Son was born at 36 weeks and my daughter was born at 27 weeks. My doctor told be because it came on earlier and more sever it will only get worse. He told NOT to get pregnant again and told me if I did that I would die. He had no problem with me trying for my daughter. My daughter was 1 lb 8oz and 12in long She stayed in the NICU for 80 days and has some health problems mostly with her lungs. If she would have been fine like my son was I might have tried again but seeing her go through what she did makes me not want to try again (even though I wanted a big family).
If you really want more as for a specialist consult, they can do some lab work and see if you have any underlying conditions. They can also give you a good idea of the chance of having it again.
