i know that men can have serious problems masturbating the prone way, but what problems can a woman get from doing that too?

None: As far as i know, the position in which a woman is in when she masturbates has no consequences of any kind.

Prone Masturbation: Per Healthline: "The increased pressure on the clitoris may make sensations from vaginal or oral sex less pleasing. You may even find that pressure from hand stimulation isn’t enough to reach orgasm." It may lead to back pain in males & females.
