Bubble Club

Float, drift and bob with other expectant mothers, swapping pregnancy stories between dips. We encourage a maternal support system through our Facebook group, allowing mums-to-be to connect outside the pool during and post pregnancy. After the bubble pops, buddy up with other new mums to watch bub while you swim laps, or simply grab a coffee poolside to exchange newborn tales. Don't forget to check in with your health care professional before jumping back in the pool. 

Babies have a natal attraction to water. In fact, being in warm water feels more familiar to them than being on dry land. Continue to make a splash with your new bub in our infant swim classes, introducing your little one to water safety through the use of games, singing and playing with toys.

Taking a dip together will strengthen your mum-and-bub bond, with the ample benefits moving beyond the pool. Having a paddle can improve your bubs’ coordination and balance, boost water confidence, build strength and develop learning skills. Not to mention our heated pools will relax your little one and stimulate their appetite, meaning improved sleeping and eating patterns.

Float on by our Aquatic Centre to keep calm and swim during your pregnancy. To sign up to this program please complete the Maternity Pass Registration form or contact us on (07) 3365 6047 to secure your Maternity Pass.
