The Bubble Club offers expectant mothers a free 14 month Maternity Pass to the Aquatic Centre, allowing you to keep fit and meet other mums-to-be. Once the bubble pops, you’ll also enjoy free access to Learn-to-Swim classes for your bub between the ages of 4-6 months!
Not only is swimming a great low-impact sport, but introducing your babe to the water provides a fun and meaningful bonding experience for both mother and child. Plus, with access to complimentary Learn-to-Swim classes, your baby will develop essential water safety skills, all while gaining confidence in the water.
To get the most out of your Maternity Pass, we encourage interaction and maternal support through our private Facebook group, where mums can connect during and post-pregnancy. Here, you can arrange your next swim with a fellow mummy swimmer, or simply plan a coffee catch up!
