You can now claim a one-off, tax-free payment of £190 from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) if you’re a mum-to-be who’s at least 25 weeks pregnant. The payment is called ‘Health in Pregnancy Grant’ and is to help you prepare for the birth of your baby.

Bye for now
Ps – This is ‘free money’ from the government to help mums-to-be cover the costs of preparing for birth. Because it is a grant, not a loan – you don’t have to pay it back! So you can easily cover the cost of the Blissful Birth programme and still have over £150 left to buy all those other essentials. 🙂
