well a few questions about it:

Is it means tested?
How long does it take to come through?
Can I get the form from anywhere other than MW. Am now 30 weeks and not seeing her again for four weeks?

TIA smile

It isn't means tested and mine came through within 2 weeks.

It does have to be completed by the MW or GP though so it might be worth seeing if you can arrange to pop in or have a seperate appointment.

It's £190, it's not means-tested, it's called the Health in Pregnancy grant, you can only get the form off your midwife or doctor I'm afraid, it gets paid into your bank account and only took a week for me I think.

There is more info here

only took a week to come through for mine too, so pretty quick I would say!

many thanks smile

Maybe I will ask her to leave me one out, it seems a waste of an appointment for someone else otherwise.
Although if it only takes a week then I might just wait for next appointment

I don't see my midwife again till i'm 28 weeks on the 2nd October. Just need to remember to ask for it!

Can you give the MW a call, ask her to pop the form through the door for you? She needs to sign it to confirm you're PG,

Took about 3 weeks for mine to come, paid straight into the bank.
