Abstract: Motherhood is an identity shift for women. Primigravida and multigravida are those populations who undergo sudden changes in body which may persist up to at least 1 year of delivery. After delivery primigravida and multigravida faces more responsibilities with their body changes. Because of increasing responsibility they cant concentrate their own body image and shape, so generally they become unsocial for particular time period. Some of them become introvert after delivery this may because of low self confidence, worthlessness and low self esteem. Physical changes results negative evaluation about body image and self esteem and lack of time to care their body causes dissatisfaction in life. So the negative body image acceptance results low self esteem. So it is necessary to find out the self esteem in relation to body image among primigravida and multigravida. The sample consists of 120 individuals, comprised of 60 Primigravida and 60 Multigravida. The variables Self-Esteem and Body Image Acceptance were measured by using Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and The Body Image- Acceptance and Action Questionnaire. The obtained data was analyzed by t-test and Pearsons correlation co-efficient. The results indicated no significant difference in Self-Esteem and Body Image Acceptance among Primigravida and Multigravida. The results also revealed that there is no correlation between Self-Esteem and Body Image Acceptance. These results implied on counseling settings, EBT, behavioral therapy, group therapy and awareness programs for mothers on body image is not a factor of self- esteem.
