Mr. Geoffrey Newby
Human Resource Manager
Dear Mr. Newby
I am writing this letter with regard to my pregnancy. I am into my seventh month of pregnancy and I am set for my maternity leave on August 1-October 1. However, my obstetrician informed me during my regular check-up yesterday that I am not in good health and the baby may be affected if I continue reporting to work for the rest of the month. She has advised me to rest more and refrain from doing any more office work.
In this regard, I would like to request for an early maternity leave starting July 14. I hope there is ample time to find a replacement to fill my position since I know that my replacement is set to start later. I have attached a copy of my obstetrician’s recommendation should it be needed by your office.
Thank you. I hope for your kind consideration.
