Dear Ms Williams,
I am writing to confirm that I am pregnant, and that my baby is due in the week Sunday 1st June – Saturday 7th June.
I would like to take a week’s annual leave from the 19th May followed by the Bank Holiday on 26th May, and then start my maternity leave and pay on Tuesday 3rd June.
I enclose my MATB1 certificate. If I am not entitled to SMP, please send me form SMP1 so I can claim Maternity Allowance.
