During the initial stages of pregnancy, bouts of vertigo may occur because hormonal changes affect the mother's blood sugar levels; low blood sugar can also lead to dizziness. In later stages, vertigo may occur when a woman lies down on her back, a shift that can make the baby press against a vein that brings blood back to the heart. Pregnancy-related vertigo should cease following childbirth.
