If you are currently on maternity leave, you may be looking for different ways you can make a bit of cash during your time off work. There are a number of options available to you that will not require a lot of exertion or a certain amount of time commitment on your behalf. So, with that being said, let’s take a look at some suggestions regarding making money while on maternity leave below.

Take online freelancing jobs – There are many freelancing jobs available online today. These jobs present you with a great way of making some extra cash, especially as you are able to pick and choose how often you work. If you have skills in areas such as writing, translation, software development, marketing, and admin, you should have no problem picking up some jobs online. There are many different ways to source these jobs too, as numerous job boards and websites have been created for freelancers specifically.


Make sure you are being treated fairly – If you are being treated fairly by your place of work and receiving the payout you are entitled to while you are pregnant, you may not need to look for additional ways to make money. If you feel you are the victim of pregnancy discrimination, it is important to work with a legal professional that can help you to launch a case and get the compensation you deserve. After all, there are lots of costs involved while pregnant. You need to prepare for the baby while caring for yourself with regular visits to a doctor and pregnancy chiropractor. Therefore, it is imperative your employer pays you what you are entitled to. 

Take surveys – There are lots of different websites that enable you to take surveys. You will be awarded points for each survey you can take, which will be converted into cash. This is not going to make you rich, but it is a good way to make some extra money.

Sell some of your belongings – Use this time as an opportunity to go through everything you have in your home and don’t need. Not only does this give you an opportunity to make some extra money by selling some of your belongings, but you can also clear any clutter in your house and create some more space, which is handy when you have a baby on the way.

Rent out your driveway – This is a good option if you live in a fairly busy area that is popular with professionals. You can rent out your driveway to someone who needs to park in the area on a weekly basis. This is a great way to make some extra cash and it is not going to require any effort whatsoever on your behalf. It is a win-win.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that you can make money while you are on maternity leave. If you follow the ideas that have been mentioned above, you should, hopefully, have no trouble finding a method that suits you.
