  • I remember the medications I was on making me dizzy....but other than that, no, I never felt that.

    Are you still bleeding pretty heavily? Loosing a lot of blood from post partum bleeding could be to blame. Don't sit up or stand up too fast and make sure you're getting plenty of fluids. If you're soaking through more than 1 pad an hour, you need to call your doctor.

  • I don't remember having dizzy spells after the first week (I had my c-section in October). You may want to talk to your doctor about it. Don't get up too fast as it may cause fainting, but definitely bring it up with your doctor.

  • I would call your dr because my friend had a c section last year, she came home and started feeling dizzy, and had to go right back into the hospital again. Don't take chances...

  • I agree, Check with your care provider. Also you might need to up your Iron intake. Dizziness can be a sign of Anemia.
