Postpartum Body Image and Self-Esteem
Keywords:body image, self-esteem, postpartum, perceived social support, body dissatisfaction
AbstractThe reason this research topic is of interest lies in the fact that the first year after birth is a major transition for all parents, especially for mothers. Thus, the objective of the present paper is to analyze certain psychosocial factors surrounding new mothers during this period and the way in which they can accentuate feelings of incapacity and powerlessness that can contribute to the development of low self-esteem and a negatively perceived body image. These factors can adversely impact the postpartum period. Furthermore, this topic has been very little explored in the Romanian population.
