7% of mothers will die. If baby is born before 28weeks there is a 80% mortality rate this drops to 20% after 28 weeks.
There is currently a test being developed in Sydney Australia where the placenta is scanned at 12 weeks that can give you your chance of developing hellp.
In Melbourne Australia they are looking at diabetic medication the maybe able to reverse some of the affects

Similar to preeclampsia
One of the better known risks to mothers following pregnancies affected by pre-eclampsia is a higher likelihood of having high blood pressure. In fact, a study published by the National Institutes of Health states that women with a history of pre-eclampsia have a higher prevalence of high blood pressure in their 50s compared to only 22 percent of women who did not suffer from the disorder.

Additionally, women with pre-eclampsia have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke later in life. Women may also have higher risks of renal disease. The rates of mortality from ischemic heart disease are much higher for women who have suffered from pre-eclampsia.

An initial study out of Norway raises questions about whether women who suffered from the disorder may have long term cognitive or memory issues. This is a preliminary study where more research is needed to know more hard facts.

What You Should Consider
If you have had pre-eclampsia in a previous pregnancy, talk to your physician if you are planning another pregnancy or are currently pregnant. You need to be especially watchful in subsequent pregnancies to get an early diagnosis if it should reappear.

If you had a pre-eclampsia history, maintain a healthy weight and get regular checkups. Let your doctor know of your history and have regular blood pressure checks. Should you have any other risk factors for heart disease besides weight, such as a family history of the disease or if you smoke, you should be especially vigilant. Women should take any symptoms of stroke or heart issues seriously and get help immediately.

There is not much research on long term morbidity rates. Once the crises has passed/baby is delivered and condition stabilizes.
