You're pregnant and this is a very special time in your life. You're experiencing changes... both physical and emotional. Some will last through your entire pregnancy. Some will change as the months go by as each trimester brings with it its own special needs. Becoming Mom specializes in meeting the unique and ever-changing needs of your pregnancy. In fact, we even have specially designed products and services for those trying to get pregnant as well as those in their postpartum months.
For Your Changing Emotional Needs...
We know this is a time when you need reassurance. Using the latest 4D ultrasound technology, our friendly, caring, RDMS medical sonographers will perform a limited diagnostic scan that will allow you to see how your baby and the placenta is positioned, measure fluid level, see the heartbeat, and watch him/her move. You can even see your baby's facial expressions and count his/her fingers and toes for the first time. Invite those closest to you to participate in this prenatal bonding experience in the comfort of our spa setting. Take home pictures, a DVD, and even a CD-ROM with images of your complete session. Our newest feature let's you share your baby's first pictures easily on Facebook.
Becoming Mom is the only elective 3D / 4D Ultrasound Center in the Cincinnati area with RDMS Sonographers.
For Your Changing Physical Needs...
Our pregnancy spa offers a special collection of therapies to help the body, mind, and spirit prepare for and acclimate to motherhood. From prenatal massage to balancing facials to pampering pedicures, we can reduce discomfort, counteract hormonal effects, and enhance the natural glow of pregnancy. And... feel free to bring a friend or the expecting Dad with you for a shared experience.
For Your Changing Product Needs...
Our products are specially selected with your unique needs in mind. Morning sickness products, skin care products, nutritional products, breast pumps, books, videos and more are available for sale. We have recently added a maternity boutique with styles that will flatter you during the bump... and beyond.
So, as the physical and emotional needs of your pregnancy change, let Becoming Mom be there for you.
Owner & New Spa Start Up Consultant
Becoming Mom was Dawn's Vision. At the heart of Becoming Mom is the Imaging Center... where we don't just create that first baby picture. By investing in state-of-the-art technology that can give Mom and Dad a high definition picture of their baby before he or she was born, Dawn's hope was that Becoming Mom would allow them to bond with their baby and become more invested in a healthy pregnancy.
Beyond the imaging, Dawn selected services and products that would educate, pamper and relax Mom..... helping her to adjust to her ever changing needs in a nurturing, pregnancy-safe Spa Environment.
With the recent addition of Becoming Mom Boutique, Dawn wanted to make buying maternity clothes more practical... and because of that we choose fashions that don't just adjust beautifully to mom's expanding tummy, but ones that look great even when she's back to her pre-pregnancy shape.
Dawn received her education at Cornell University before coming to Cincinnati and spending 19 years at Procter & Gamble. She is of course a mom herself with 2 children.

All of Becoming Mom's Massage Therapists are Pre-Natal and Postpartum Certified, which means they not only have their Massage License from the Ohio State Medical Board, but also went through extensive training in Pregnancy Massage. Other Spas may say their therapists are "trained", but you should be sure to ask if that training extended beyond the brief amount of training they might have received during their overall Massage School Curriculum.
