Dear Ms. Manager,

Please accept my resignation effective September 30, 20XX. As you know, I had my second child in August and I have decided that I will not be returning to work after my maternity leave. I have made the decision to stay home with my children for the foreseeable future.

Thank you for your understanding. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance during this transitional time.

Sincerely,

Your Signature (hard copy letter)
