Postpartum Support Groups in Santa Barbara

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.

ou do not have to wait until a new group starts to join us. New parents are welcome to come whenever you are ready. We look forward to meeting you and your family. Please note: Babies in arms are, of course, welcome, but unfortunately our space does not allow for older children or siblings to join.

New Parent Group Meetings are every Thursday from 10AM – 12 NOON

The pregnancy and postpartum journey is not meant to be done alone, yet it can feel so lonely for many.
According to the wisdom from cultures and traditions who center mothers, in order to fully heal after birth, community support is essential. This can look different for everyone but for many mothers postpartum support groups are an opportunity to check in with yourself, connect with other mothers, to be witnessed in the mess and magic of motherhood and feel less alone.

Bring a blanket and your baby. We encourage you to come if you are pregnant as well! Link in bio to sign up!

Thank you for your interest in Cohero.

In response to the incredible feedback and tremendous support from our expanding network of parents, we have made the decision to transition our product focus from supporting parents working from home to a product that  caters to postpartum mothers. The insights and experiences shared by our users have highlighted the unique challenges and needs that arise during this transformative phase.

Mother Muna will host resources tailored to the needs of mothers, as well as  a platform build mother-centered registries and direct access to care provider services.

We are thrilled to embark on this new direction and would love for you to join us.

With love,
Rachel | Founder of Cohero and Mother Muna
