Lightheadedness, dizzyness after looking sidewards. Happening after childbirth. Side effect of natural delivery?

Hello, for some time now if I turn to look sideways to either side I get light headed, dizzy as if I am going to pass out. I ve noticed this after I had my first child. Is this normal or I heard it was a side effect of having a child natural delivery, but that it should go away, my child is going to be 3 years old next month. Should I see a doctor?

Hello user,
Congratulations on the birth of your baby. I hope your baby is doing well !!
As far as complains about lightheadedness and dizziness is concerned, they are normally seen after delivery.

There had been many changes in your body while you were pregnant, there is change in blood volume, change in quality of blood, change in circulation dynamics, which are important for survival of baby inside your womb.
After Delivery there is abrupt change in circulation system, like blood flow to uterus is reduced, contraction of uterine vessels.These changes cause dizziness and other symptoms.
The symptoms normally wears off till few days after delivery, but if you still feeling the symptoms you are advised to visit nearby Gynecologist/Obstetrics for proper care.

hope my info helped you
