PEP – Postpartum Education For Parents

PEP – Postpartum Education For Parents

PEP Groups are a great place to meet other families with babies the same age, dealing with the same issues, sorting through some of the same challenges, and experiencing the same joys that come along with new parenthood. New parents are welcome to come whenever you are ready. 

Warmline... Our free Warmline service provides confidential one-on-one support from trained volunteers who are parents just like you. 805-564-3888 (English) or 805-852-1595 (Español)

New Parent Discussion Groups every Thursday • 10AM – 12 NOON • JOIN >

New parents are welcome to come whenever you are ready. PEP Groups are free-of-charge, facilitated by PEP volunteers, and cover topics such as breastfeeding issues, sleep challenges, emotional highs and lows, and changing relationships. It’s comforting to know that others are going through the same thing at the same time, while learning from each other in a safe environment.

PEP is different from other new parent groups, with a primary focus on support of the new parent(s). We encourage peer support in a judgement-free atmosphere. We understand that every family is unique, and our philosophy is that there is no one right way to parent – we encourage each family to find the methods that are right for their ever-changing needs. Come to our PEP Groups with the intent of getting and giving peer support, and leave making new friendships that will last a lifetime!
