"It was great to have a chance to talk to other expectant parents about how things are going, and to get tips from them about how to make it through these last few weeks. I also liked being able to get all my questions about PEPS answered."

Pertussis Policy

Please note: Due to the recent epidemic and continued concerns of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) in Washington State, we require all adults registering for PEPS Groups to verify that they are current on the Tdap booster. However, While You’re Waiting information sessions do not require pre-registration and there may be people in attendance who have not had the booster, just as there may be in any public place. Anyone with cold symptoms should not attend our While You’re Waiting sessions. If you have questions, please contact PEPS Program Director, Mary Power, at maryp@peps.org.

Call PEPS at (206) 547-8570 or email carim@peps.org.
