There could be many different causes for syncope. Common causes are lack of food and/or water (dehydration), or another cause could be Iron anaemia. It could also be the result of more serious issues, and as this has happened 3 times in one week, she really needs to see her GP so he can do blood work and if indicated, other appropriate tests.
