Im 19 weeks pregnant and self employed,anyone have any info on the forms to fill in or where to go to sort maternity pay out?

And do you go onto the SMP straight away?

Im self employed too, cant claim SMP only MA (Maternity Allowance) which i believe is around £123 a week at the moment, or 90% of your current earnings if less than this. I had to ring Jobcentre Plus up, went through loads of questions which took about 15 mins, they are sending forms out in the post which i have to fill in and take in with my Mat B1 form. You can claim this for up to 39 weeks.
