Featuring high-quality exhibitors with a focus on ethical, local, sustainable, stylish and practical products and services, find all the essentials for your family’s new chapter under one roof.
Our carefully curated event will help you prepare for your new bub, or get toddler-ready, without the overwhelm.
In this online age and this time of social distancing, expectant and new families need all the help they can get accessing the information, services and products they need.
Coal Coast Pregnancy & Baby Expo is an event with a focus on our local community, supporting high-quality small businesses, and giving a holistic experience of products and services for new families, without the overwhelm of the big city, big crowd events.
We’ve hand-picked a selection of fabulous businesses to exhibit at this year’s inaugural event, with a focus on local boutique retailers and professional service providers who know their stuff.
This is your opportunity to touch, feel and try fantastic products for mums, bubs and toddlers, while asking questions and making informed choices about what’s best for your family.

“The Coal Coast Pregnancy and Baby Expo gives the community a wonderful opportunity for the fabulous services and businesses to support and nurture busy parents. I kept seeing all these mamas enter into their pregnancies, baby and toddler journeys, navigating the changes that come with it and not always knowing where to start looking for help. I also knew of these amazing, local businesses that could help make motherhood easier… I simply had to connect these two groups together.”

“I love supporting local families and businesses by bringing them together under one roof at our very special expo. This is exactly the kind of event I would have loved when I was starting out on my own parenting journey. The opportunity for expectant and new parents to ask questions and check-out products in real life is worth its weight in gold.”
