Coming off statutory maternity - any further benefits?

My partner is coming off statutory maternity leave but wants to stay off work for a further 3 months so she can enjoy Christmas with our first child. I earn £38000 per year and the only thing we get currently is approx £96/month for child tax benefit. I've done an entitledto form to check whether she can claim universal credit now going off statutory, but it comes up as 0. 
Is it worth sending an application for universal credit to see if she would be entitled to anything? It seems a lot for a single wage to cover those 3 months coming up to a year after having our first child.
