Your mat leave starts the day you finish up work, you will get paid from that day. You get 9months paid leave and you can have anougther 3 months leave unpaid. That is your legal entitlement.

How do i write a leave request letter for maternity?

We Answered:

You dont. You are given a MAT1B form from your GP or midwife and you complete that and hand it to Human Resources at your company. Thats all you need to do.

How to write a maternity leave letter?

We Answered:

The First Notification
This letter notifies your employer that you intend to take maternity leave. It should be given to your employer at least 10 weeks before you wish to commence maternity leave.

Write your name
and address here


Write your employer's
name and address here

Dear (insert employer's name)

This letter is to notify you that I am pregnant and wish to take maternity leave. I will write again advising you of the date on which I will commence maternity leave and how much leave I intend to take.

At that time I will give you a medical certificate confirming my pregnancy and the expected date of the baby's birth.

Yours faithfully




Sign and date the letter


You can vary the letter to fit your particular circumstances, for example, you may wish to attach a medical certificate confirming that you are pregnant and with the expected date of birth instead of waiting until the second notification. Make sure that you keep a copy of any letters to your employer.

The Second Notification
This letter lets your employer know how much maternity leave you intend to take. This letter must be given to your employer no later than four weeks before you wish to commence maternity leave.

If you have not yet provided your employer with a medical certificate you must do this before commencing leave.

You can change the period of leave you are seeking to suit your own circumstances. Remember, apart from one week of short paternity leave, you and your spouse (including de facto spouse) cannot take leave at the same time.

My husband/spouse/de facto spouse plans to take 10 weeks paternity leave commencing on (insert date here). I have enclosed a statutory declaration to this effect.

Yours faithfully
