PEP: Postpartum Education for Parents

Our mission is to support growing families in the Santa Barbara area with opportunities for education, encouragement, and social engagement in a way that is non‐judgmental, inclusive, and community‐based. 

Whether this is your first baby or your third, meeting other people going through the same stage of parenting at the same time forges deep bonds. We have PEP Groups that continue to meet on a weekly basis for years, even through second generations!

We’re thrilled when we see friendships form that last a lifetime.
