More money for pregnant women14th November 2007
Expectant mothers are to be given a new one-off payment worth £190 to keep them healthy in the final weeks of pregnancy.
The government has announced that the Health in Pregnancy Grant will be paid to women from the 25th week of pregnancy, starting in April 2009. The funding, which is not means tested, is designed to help women maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, to claim the money, women must be under the care of a midwife or health worker.
