Maternity Leave letter, Sample & Format

A Maternity letter is submitted by an expectant mom to her employer for the days of rest when her baby is born. Sometimes the company allows the maternity leave to be effective slightly earlier than the actual birth date for the expectant mom to rest at home. The number of days in a maternity leave is dependent on the labor law or company regulations, whichever is more favorable to the mother.

Dear Mr. Miller

RE: Request for Maternity Leave

I am writing this letter to inform you of my upcoming maternity leave due around June 20, 2010. As advised by my gynecologist, it is better for me to rest a little more at home before the expected date of delivery as I am expecting twins. I am much heavier than the ordinary single baby pregnancy and thus, the doctor advised against excessive movements during the last month of my pregnancy.

Hence, I would like to request for my maternity leave entitlement of 75 days to commence as of June 1, 2010. I have already prepared babysitting helps after the delivery of my babies to enable me to return to work as scheduled.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused with my request. I ask for your kind cooperation in this matter. I look forward to a favorable reply from you soon to facilitate my work responsibilities.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Natasha Bligh
