Pregnancy is more precious experience. First pregnancy is more joyful and also feels anxious about how they are going to cope with themselves. With this aim the researcher made an attempt to assess anxiety on labour process among the pregnant women. A quantitative research approach with descriptive design was adopted. The sample consists of 100 primigravida by purposive sampling technique. Structured interview schedule was used to collect the data from primigravida females in the month of Feb. The collected data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Study findings shows that the majority of the primigravida i.e. 43% belongs to the age group of less than 23 years, 33% of the primigravida were studied till metric class, majority (81%) of primigravida were house wives, 53% of primigravida were from the families having monthly income of less than Rs.10,000/-, 52% of primigravida were housewives, majority (59%) of the primigravida were from nuclear family and 41% of primigravida gained knowledge on labour from their family. Assessment of anxiety by the Hamilton anxiety scale shows that majority of the primigravida i.e. 79% had moderate level of anxiety, 14% of primigravida had mild level of anxiety and 7% of them had severe level of anxiety.
