Anyone here have a csection due to HELLP?

Hello! I'm new here. I normally post on another forum but I want to start PMing people so I figure I might as well join in for a bit.

I recently had my first baby. I had pregnancy induced hypertension starting at 32 weeks but it was well controlled. Then I suddenly had a nightmare experience and ended up getting an emergency c section due to HELLP syndrome at 37 weeks.

Anyway, just curious if there were other HELLP mamas here and if so, how are you handling future pregnancies? Are you going to a high risk doctor? What did your doctor say about your chance of getting HELLP again - I have seen statistics as low as 5% and as high as 25%.
