Maternity Leave Letter

A maternity leave letter is written to take leave during the pregnancy days for the childcare. A woman writes this letter to the employer giving all details regarding her leave. It is important for a woman to be at rest during her pregnancy so that this letter informs the concerned authority for her leave application for baby delivery. The letter must contain the period of leave so that one can balance the work responsibility.

Here in the example stated below, a woman writes this letter to the employer for taking leave during her pregnancy as the doctor prescribed her to be at rest.

Subject: Maternity leave required

Dear Mr Lewis,

I am writing this letter to apply for my maternity leave as my baby delivery is in nearest dates. As per the doctor’s saying, it will be approximately 25 Sep, 2014. Though I was feeling well at work during the pregnancy, but my doctor advised me to take rest in these days. The purpose of the letter is to seek permission for the 2 months leave which will be effective from 24 of Sep. As I have my annual leave allowance so cover the maternity leave under the allowance. I know my responsibility for the work and I will back to my job as soon as possible.

If I need to extend the leave, I will inform you. I am requesting you to approve my leave and inform me as early as possible.

Hope you understand the need for the leave.

Thanking you in advance.
