What is dizziness during pregnancy?

Dizziness in pregnant women is mainly due to insufficient blood supply to the brain.
In early and middle pregnancy, due to the formation of placenta, the blood pressure of pregnant women will drop to a certain extent, resulting in reduced blood flow into the cerebral vessels, causing dizziness.
Early pregnancy reactions such as nausea and vomiting will occur in early pregnancy, causing pregnant women to eat too little and have lower blood sugar, causing dizziness.
In late pregnancy, the uterus enlarges, and when lying down, the enlarged uterus will compress the inferior vena cava behind, reducing the blood flow back to the heart and reducing blood ejection from the heart, resulting in reduced cerebral blood flow and causing dizziness.
Pregnant women are responsible for the blood supply of both themselves and their children during pregnancy, which can predispose them to anemia and cause dizziness. Gestational hypertension can also cause dizziness, and severe malignant hypertension leads to eclampsia, which requires emergency treatment. Most dizziness in pregnant women can be relieved, but if it does not ease for a long time or recurring, you need to seek medical attention immediately and treat it under the guidance of a professional doctor, and remember not to take private medication.
