Expected Week of Childbirth Notification Letter
This Expected Week of Childbirth Notification Letter (EWC) is to be used by
a pregnant employee who is now in a position to inform her employer of her
EWC. The employer should be informed of this date at the employee’s
earliest convenience, and at the very latest by the fifteenth week before
the baby is due. It is important to note that the employer must know
everything by the fifteenth week, including dates of maternity leave and
maternity pay. This Expected Week of Childbirth Notification letter should
be provided to the employee to help enable her to provide details of the
EWC as soon as that date is known.
After the 21st week of pregnancy, your midwife or GP will
present you with a MATB1 certificate. This certificate will confirm the
expected date of childbirth. The MATB1 should be attached to this
Notification Letter as official confirmation of the date for your employer.
This letter template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details
in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
