While You're Waiting

While You're Waiting

"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."

While You're Waiting info sessions are a great way to learn about PEPS and to meet other new and expectant parents in your area to talk about the experience of pregnancy and early parenthood.

Who Attends: Expectant/New Parents
Time of Day: Evening
Cost: Free

Attending a While You’re Waiting Information Session is encouraged but not mandatory before signing up for a PEPS Group.

Adjusting to Parenthood - PEPS and Perinatal Support Washington offer a drop-in group that gives parents additional support for the emotional changes and challenges of adapting to parenthood. Learn More

Please note: Due to the recent epidemic and continued concerns of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) in Washington State, PEPS has implemented a policy requiring that all adults who attend PEPS Groups must be current on their Tdap vaccination. Getting vaccinated with Tdap at least two weeks before coming into close contact with an infant is especially important for families and caregivers of new infants.

All babies must be current on the DTaP vaccine once they are old enough for the first dose. Families who do not comply with this policy cannot participate in PEPS at this time.

If you have any questions about this policy, please contact
