I have a close friend who is currently pregnant with twins. She is not coping mentally and with everything in general at the moment and has been told by her medical professional to stop work within the next 3 weeks due to medical reasons. However, she financially doesn't think this is possible. I was wondering if anyone knew of any financial help or assistance she might be able to apply for through the government not including her maternity leave? To make this possible. I am really worried about her well being and just want to try and gain as much information, assistance and support I can for her to she can just concentrate on looking after herself and bubs.
