    im pretty sure every1 is intitled 2 £190...if u r on a low wage then its increased 2 £500 i think. You can claim between 25weeks of pregnancy and 3months after birth. there is a big back log at the moment, so it wil take a few months 2 come through so i would send it off asap.
    any other infomation you can find out on directgov.org or check with your midwife.
    hope this helps x

    £190 is the health in pregnancy grant which everyone pregnant mum will get in the new tax year. Your midwife will give you that form once you are over 25 weeks pregnant, or should, cos I'm still waiting!!

    Sure Start Grant of £500 is means tested depending on your income. As you are on your own and going on to SMP you will probbaly get it. As Serina says wait until baby is here and tax credits are sorted out and then claim as you can claim up to 3 months once baby is here.
