Hi ladies!
I have a full time job. I am planning to have a baby soon and my job only pays for a few weeks maternity leave. Any work from home ideas? I just want to start now so I can get into the swing of things ! Ideally I would like to avoid any MLM schemes. Help most appreciated!

What skills do you have?

Are you planning to use childcare? It’s very hard to wfh with a baby there and even harder the older they get

If you are doing another job would you have to pay your maternity pay back? Are you able to claim SMP and does that also preclude other work? Best to do the extra job(s) now and save up maybe

Whats your skill set?

It's challenging working from home with a baby. My son is 17 months and I manage is best now that he has one set nap a day. But it can be hard when they are little to predict sleeping unless you take the pram out.

There's a site called people per hour - can you do any of those type things?

I'd rather sell my worn knickers than be part of any MLM
