    This is what I wrote - hope it helps! :)

    Dear XXX (HR manager)

    Please find enclosed my MATB1 form, which confirms that I am pregnant and due to have a baby during the week of 20th - 26th October 2013.

    As such, I wish to give notice of my intent to take my Maternity Leave and pay starting from Wednesday 2nd October 2013.

    I have 7 days of annual leave remaining for 2013. I would like to take these days at the beginning of my Maternity Leave, meaning that my last day of work would be Friday 20th September 2013.

    I intend to take the full 52 weeks of maternity leave, meaning that if my leave starts on intended date, my last day of maternity leave will be Tuesday 30th September 2014, and I should return to work on Wednesday 1st October 2014. If I wish to change the date I am coming back to work, or if I decide that I do not intend to return to work I will give you the notice period required – please let me know by return what this period will be.

    Of course! I think I pinched mine from another forum actually! :)

    Good luck handing it in, I was so happy when I got my confirmation letter back - let the countdown continue! (10 weeks 2 days! Lol!) xx

    Hi Twinkle - I was told that if you know who you're addressing it to e.g. if it says "Dear Bob...", then use Yours Sincerely, but if you just use a title e.g. "Dear HR Manager", then use Yours Faithully.

    I used Yours Sincerely, then signed my name and my job title, and the date.

    Let the countdown begin!!!:dance:
