Working mums? Maternity leave

Sooo the long wait is going to finally be over! I am going on my mat leave in 2.5 weeks. My boss and a few of closer colleagues already know when is my last day, however I was wondering if I should shoot an email to everyone and let them know my official leaving day and when should I send that email? Any suggestions?

In the month or so leading up to me taking maternity leave I included the details in my auto signature so that the clients and colleagues I was in in touch with during that lead up time could see I would be off work imminently, and perhaps unexpectedly swiftly (should things go that way). I also included the details of when I was returning to work.
e.g. "please note I am due to take parental leave commencing XXX . I will be returning to my role full time on XX."
Adjust the above if you are planning to work only a few days a week upon your return.
