Sub : Maternity leave extension letter

Dear Sir,

It is to inform you that my newborn baby has jaundice and is still very weak and his health is deteriorating day by day. I shall be overseeing his care and follow-up treatment with his pediatrician until he is healthy. Attached is a medical certificate from my infant’s doctor for your official records.

I am in the last week of my maternity leave. My official leave duration is from September 15th, 2014 to November 30th, 2014. In line with this, I would like to request an extension of my maternity leave or another 2 months from November 30th, 2014 to January 31st 2015.

Reference to my previous letter my colleague Mr. Tim Matthew will continue doing my work for next two months and I have already conveyed this message to him, he accepted it and assured that he will do my job without any delays and problems. I hope you would consider my request and would approve extension of my maternity leave.

I thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Jammy Rose
