    Thank you for your (generous) help.

    (I have no idea what you mean by "caring" and "maternity".:))
    Thank velisarius. Would you suggest omitting willingness to before help? With good maternity, I meant to wish her have a good maternity period since she has just had a baby.

    We don't talk about "a maternity period". (I think you already have another thread where some suggestions were made for wishes to a new mother.)

    If this lady helped you, she was more than just "willing" to help - she did in fact help you. If you like, you can say "Thank you for being so willing to help."

    Thank you, velisarius. Actually, I am asking her a favour, she has not yet helped me. I am thanking her, presuming that she will help me.

    We can help you better if you give us the entire context. To be clear: you have asked her to do you a favor, but she has not done it yet. Has she told you that she will do it?

    Hi Florentia52, and thank you for your reply. No, she has not, but I am very confident that she will do her best to try to do me the favor, thanks to our friendship.
