'Fainting is seen following sudden change of posture because of reduction of blood supply to the brain as it is probably occurring in your case. This is normal but this known to occur more often in individuals with hypotension, anemia or follwing hypoglycemia.
If the condition is recurring please do consult physician to rule out teh above mentioned conditions.
Thank you
