If you don't think you can afford it and your leave won't be paid then you might want to get on welfare, even if it's just for a few months, and WIC.

Do you have any family that can help you?

i had to get on welfare during my maternity leave, there was really no other option for me and it was humiliating and frustrating but it was only temporary. in Oregon it's called TANF, see if your state has something similar, when you go back to work they simply take you off the assistance. good luck!
