Low iron, passed out, what to do?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and need to go to hospital to have a drip done to boost iron levels. I've just passed out and I haven't hurt myself (was in bed), but I don't know if I need to do anything about it I.e. Inform anyone etc? It seems stupid, but the midwife knows I have low iron, I have yet to hear when the drip is (she said she'd call me around 3/4), but do I need to inform anyone or get anyone over to sit with me? Thanks so much in advance, just freaking out sad

Ring your midwife or if you are unable to contact them directly then ring the your pregnancy assessment unit or the place where you plan to give birth.

Oh no, hope you are feeling better soon.
Definitely call your midwife, sounds like you need it treating asap.
