When an employee goes on maternity leave, she or her boss should inform all other colleagues about it. This will be an extended leave, so either her responsibilities will be assigned to some other staff or her temporary replacement will be selected.

As some of you may know, I am pregnant and due in a few months. I want to request some flexible work arrangements to manage my workload during this time better. Specifically, I would like to be able to work from home a few days each week and have a reduced schedule for the last month before my leave begins.
I understand that this may be disruptive to some people in the team, but I promise to do my best to make it work. I appreciate your understanding and support during this time.

I am writing to let you know that one of our employees, Jane Doe, is pregnant and will be on maternity leave shortly. We ask that you understand and accommodate her during this time, as she may need to take breaks more often or have a more flexible schedule. I appreciate your support.
Please join me in wishing her a healthy delivery and best of luck with her newborn.
