    Hello!
    I'm hopefully applying for a PhD and I've been encouraged to contact my chosen potential supervisor by e-mail to discuss my proposal informally.
    The person who I'd like to supervise my PhD is on maternity leave and is due to return to work in April.
    I know her well as she was my undergraduate personal tutor.
    What is the etiquette in terms of contacting somebody who is on leave?

    Thanks

    Hi, I know you're on leave but wanted to see if this is OK for when you return.
    Wish luck or something (I get nervous about this bit incase of any complications).
    Done.

    Thanks that's helpful. She's already had baby and sent me a postcard which is lovely.
    Just didn't want to pester.
