Do they need to know I’m pregnant?

I get standard pip and low mobility and wrag esa income related.

I just found out I’m pregnant, do I need to let esa or pip know? 

Also last time I was pregnant my spd was so bad I was in a wheelchair for 6 months. If this happens again do I need to tell them about that?

    Hi there 

    You don't need to let PIP know any changes are only reported if expected to last 9 months or more 

    Esa you need to let know I think as you may go onto maternity pay instead
