|The other day I was at the shops and I fainted clean onto
the floor. I think it was a bad smell or something. I was
extremely embarrassed at the time, but now I am starting to
think about the fact that the baby would have been starved
of blood for a couple of minutes. Is there a possibility that
the baby is affected?
Although dizziness is extremely common, actually fainting
is not a normal part of pregnancy and you should contact
your doctor. However, it is extremely unlikely that the
fainting spell had any negative effect on your baby. The
flow of blood to your own brain may have been reduced, but
it is unlikely that the baby was also affected.
