Second Time Around

Register for a PEPS Second Time Around Group

The PEPS Second Time Around program is designed for new parents to attend with their babies, aged 2-20 weeks old, in a family with one or more older children. Groups are available for one parent to attend with their newborn (the same parent every week).

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 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

Groups fill quickly - register today to secure your spot!

Virtual groups will be offered based on the following regions: North Seattle, South Sound, Eastside, South Seattle, Snohomish, and you can select which region works best for you.

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.

*Cost includes a non-refundable registration fee of $20 or 10% of the program fee, whichever is less. In the cases of changes or cancellations, please visit our FAQs page for the PEPS Cancellation and Refund Policy.

"It was something to look forward to every week and the meetings were enjoyable times to socialize with other women who had two children roughly the same ages." - PEPS Group Participant

"It was helpful to be with others who were dealing with an infant and toddler at the same time. I loved getting together with other parents who "get it" when I talk about the challenges of my day!" - PEPS Group Participant
