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.


Barbara Brown
