    Maternity grant is for first baby (or at least will be soon) if you claim tax credits above a certain amount.

    it is for anyone that is unable to work due to having a baby we COULDNT get it while I was preggers as hubbie earned over 16K BUT I was told to try again once LO is born in the 1st 3 months and you'll likely get it and we did so we managed to get a lovely pushchair
