Pregnancy and baby payment

The Pregnancy and Baby Payment has replaced the Sure Start Maternity Grant in Scotland. You can only apply for the Pregnancy and Baby Payment if you live in Scotland. 

If you qualify, the payment for your first child will be paid £600 and £300 for any other child, such as your second or third child.
