If I suffer from low blood pressure, will my fetus receive enough blood flow?

In brief: Yes

Unless blood pressure is dangerously low, the baby will typically receive adequate blood flow.
During pregnancy the body tends to focus blood flow to the uterus. So while the baby gets plenty of blood flow, you may feel light-headed or dizzy if your blood pressure is very low. Most pregnant women have relatively low blood pressures and feel fine.
