Behind the scenes at the Baby & Bump Market Co

Pru Coulstock, who revitalised the beloved Babe & Bump Market Co. (formerly Sunny Coast Baby & Kids Market) a year ago, is the mastermind behind this new Sunshine Coast pregnancy and baby expo.

“I wanted to bring a professional parenthood event to the Sunshine Coast for families and businesses,” Pru says. “The success of the Sunday market inspired me to create something bigger, benefiting the Sunshine Coast community and local businesses.”

Unlike the casual, preloved-focused Sunday market, the Babe & Bump Market Co. Expo is an exclusive event for businesses to showcase their products and services to a targeted audience of expectant parents and families. The fully accessible, climate-controlled venue boasts dedicated nursing and mother’s rooms, ensuring a comfortable experience.

Visitors can expect a day filled with learning, connecting, and discovering a wide range of products and services. The expo promises something for everyone, from essential baby gear to expert advice and exciting activities for little ones.

Pru adds, “I can’t wait to see families enjoying themselves and discovering new things. The free activities for children are exceptional, and I’m excited to create a sense of belonging and community.”

So mark your calendars for 11th May, as the Babe & Bump Market Co. Expo is set to be a must-attend event for anyone planning, expecting or raising a little one on the Sunshine Coast.


When: 11 May 2024, 10 am – 4 pm
