PEPS Newborn

The PEPS Newborn program is designed for parents to attend with their babies, aged 2-20 weeks old, when the group starts. Groups are available for one parent to attend with their newborn (the same parent every week), along with options for one parent plus a partner (and newborn!) to attend.

Groups come together for 12 weeks with time for sharing parenting highs and lows, to focus on the babies' development and a discussion topic. Meetings also include time for informal socializing and connecting with other parents.

PEPS Groups are offered online, in person at community sites or in homes. 

Who Attends: One parent or parents and baby

Where: Online or in person at community sites or in homes. Families who are joining an in-home group will rotate hosting duties at their homes. Families who are joining a site-based group will meet at the same location each week.

Cost*: We offer Flexible Pricing for all groups
Length: 2 hours, once a week, for 12 weeks

    PEPS partners with Families of Color Seattle  (FOCS), a local organization that offers free virtual and in-person parent groups tailored to different locations and stages, including North and South end newborns and waddlers. Additionally, Affinity Groups are available, bringing together individuals with common race, ethnic identity, or interests such as Black Moms, Parents of Neurodivergent Children, Dads, Single Parents, and Queer and Trans Families. Groups offer a nurturing environment to enhance parenting skills and facilitate discussions on identity and race. FOCS groups are facilitated by trained parents with lived experiences relevant to the group. We encourage families with children of color to join a FOCS parent group. For more information or to register online, visit their Parent Groups information page.

    Adjusting to Parenthood PEPS and Perinatal Support Washington offer a weekly virtual group, providing parents additional support for the emotional changes and challenges of adapting to parenthood.

    "The best thing about PEPS was the camaraderie. Meeting with these mamas and their babies every week and creating that connection was invaluable. I learned so much about myself, my abilities, and my baby, and made life long friends. PEPS is amazing!" - PEPS Group Participant

    "This was the best parenting (and partnering) decision we have made. It aligned us with other parents in our neighborhood and it helps to filter through things that might feel overwhelming. Also, it is so great to share all the fun (and less fun) sides of parenting with other people who know and want to hear about it!"  - PEPS Group Participant
