So, I am currently 19 weeks pregnant and informed work last week. My job is so stressful, im underpaid, undervalued and they take the piss out of me! To add to that I have 3 beautiful children at home who I miss dearly and have extortionate childcare costs as well as the stress of sorting mornings and evenings out with them as my partners hours change last minute so I have to plan as if he cant help picking them up etc. Anyway, if I quit my job will I get maternity allowance? or will I get smp because I will be able to leave around 25 weeks pregnant? Also, if I get MA or SMP does that mean I wont get tax credits as that's what id depend on for living whilst partners wage pays the bills? I just don't know where to start!
