    hi hun,

    I have aplied for this, you can get it if your on either income suport, or a higher rate of child tax credit sue to a disabilty.

    My daughter get disablity allownce which makes me child tax credit go up.
    Im sure if your mum gets income suport you would quilfy for it.

    If you phone your local socail sucuraty or job center, they will put you through to someone who will send you out all the forms etc.

    You have to wait untill your 29 weeks pregnant before you send the forms back tho, if you send them in before then, the claim will be void and thrown out.

    I get to send mine back on monday.

    good luck, hope that helps

    You can definately get the Surestart maternity grant if your Mum is on Income support or your Mum gets the higher rate of Child Tax credit. You need to ring your local Job centre for the forms and fill in and send back from 29 weeks pregnant up until 3 months after your baby is born.

    My Local Job Centre was brilliant. I send the forms back on the Monday and the money was in my bank the following Monday.

    Good Luck
