Pregnancy and Baby Payment

The Pregnancy and Baby Payment is a cash payment for the parents, or carers, of a baby.

It’s paid to help cover some of the costs of having children. These costs could be things like needing a pram or buying clothes for your baby but, because it’s a cash payment, you can choose how you need to spend the money.
