Benefits when pregnant

Hiya going to be a first time mum and I'm currently unemployed. Is there any benefits I'm eligible to While pregnant 


  • Hi. Yes you can get benefits. I am not 100% sure on the iniversal credit system but on the old system you had to claim job seekers until you were 28weeks pregnant. From that point its income support. Universal credit will be similar. You should theN get help with housing also.

    you can also apply for healthy start vouchers once you are 10 weeks pregnant which are sent out and can be used to buy milk and veg)

    if its your first baby you can apply for a sure start maternity grant which is £500

    best thing to do is apply for universal credit online and then take it from there
