    Congrats on your pregnancy and trying to sort everything out before your bub arrives
    As far as not excepting government benefits, if that's what it takes to support your child then I would take them. You won't be entitled to paid parental leave or maternity leave from an employer so family assistance and parenting payment might be needed to get you through financially.
    Best of luck.

    Hi there, congrats on your pregnancy and your positive attitude to get sorted before bub comes. Definitely try to get a job (even if its outside of what you really want to do). Will you continue to live with your parents once bub arrives? This may say you a lot of rent etc. start keeping your eye out for people wanting to pass all their baby stuff on or sell it cheap 2nd hand. And sit down with someone who is finance savvy to help you how to save for bub and pay your debts off. Best of luck
