Paternity Leave Letter

A Paternity leave letter is written with the same reason as maternity leave letter is meant. Nowadays, this type of letter is a common thing to inform the concerned authority that an individual wants to take a leave for caring his wife during her pregnancy. It is not only the responsibility of a mother to take the childcare, but also the responsibility of a father to help his wife in her pregnancy days. As it is seeking permission for a leave, the tone of the letter should be polite. Apart from the principal reason for your leave, which is to help your wife, if there is any further reason, you can add this to make your side strong.

In the sample of the paternity leave letter provided below, a person writes this letter to the concerned department in order to take leave to be with his wife in her pregnancy days as she has pregnancy complication.

Dear Sir,


The purpose of this letter is to inform you that I want to take paternity leave to help my wife during her pregnancy. The reasons are many for applying the leave; as it is the first pregnancy, we both are excited as well as nervous. I want to take care of both my wife and my baby.

Another reason is that the ultrasound scan showed my wife has the possibility of giving multiple births for having the multiple fetuses. The exact number is still not ascertained. In this situation, I cannot let her alone. It is a big responsibility that I have to look after.

Thanking you in anticipation of your positive response.

Yours faithfully,

Gregor Pasteur,

Chief Laundryman,

Goodpasture Industry.
