was coming up for 6 months prob, left my part time job 3 weeks ago, now im not sure if i would be entitled to anything please advise, thank you. Last job before that was Dec 2007that was part time so have made NI contributions how does it work?.
Sorry for brief post earlier, was still waking up (am slow in the mornings!) - it sounds like you probably do qualify for MA if you have been working for at least 6 months. The qualifying period includes 6 months before pregnancy as flowerybeanbag says, so even if you left your job very early on in pregnancy you would be fine as long as you were working for 6 weeks beforehand.
I think there is a minimum number of hours each week which you have to have worked for it to count, but it's really low, you could work 1-2 days a week and it would still count as working for that week.
Bertie the OP says she was just coming up for 6 months - in other words she hadn't done 6 months yet. She left 3 weeks ago, prior to finding out she was pregnant, so she is unlikely to qualify yet and will need to do a few more weeks' work somewhere.
