Should I take my leave I'll be put on garden leave, and will have 3 months between that ending and baby being due.

I would be getting a small redundancy and mat payment from my employer.

Can I, in the 3 months, claim anything like job seekers allowance etc?

It would be nice to find a little local job and I'll be looking for one but doubt I'll be hired due to bump.

You could claim contributions based JSA but not at the same time as smp. I'm a bit confused has your smp been paid in a lump sum?
