"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 in just one free session. NOTE: this is a one-time drop-in session, not an ongoing group.

While You’re Waiting Information Sessions are offered at various locations in King and South Snohomish County. There is no registration required and you can attend one session at any time/location that works for your schedule. Babies in arms are welcome.

Attending a While You’re Waiting Information Session is encouraged but not mandatory before signing up for a PEPS Group. To register for a PEPS Newborn program, you will need to create a PEPS account, log in, and register.

If no one arrives, the leader will only stay the first 30 minutes of the session.

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
