Pregnant womanPregnant women whose baby is due on or after 6 April 2009 can get a new grant of £190 if they meet some simple conditions.

To qualify for the new Health in Pregnancy grant you just need to show that:

You are 25 weeks pregnant or more
Your expected due date is 6 April 2009 or later
You have been given health advice from a midwife or doctor.

You will receive a payment of £190 direct into your bank account.  It won’t affect any other benefits you receive and isn’t means-tested.

Apply by getting a signed claim form from your midwife or doctor and then sending it to HMRC within 31 days of the signature.

More details about the Health in Pregnancy grant are available from the Directgov website.
