Best bet is to contact the job centre or look on www.gov.uk

Maternity allowance or there's two other types which pay more but are only available if she's been with the company longer than a certain amount of time. After the baby is born you'll be entitled to child benefit which you apply to at hmrc. And depending on your income you might qualify for child tax credits and working tax credits these are also applied to at hmrc. You might already qualify for working tax credits you can check this online
