    Mother’s Day is almost here. So, to get ready for the big day, we feature a local mommy mecca to learn about their special mom-focused services, exclusive discounts, and an upcoming event that’ll feature lots of creative “mommy makers” in town. Keep reading for all the mama-dotin’ details.


    Mother’s Day is just around the corner and Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound offers pampering services to make the day extra special.

    “Becoming Mom is the perfect place for all moms, not just expecting ones,” says Ally Osborne, General Manager at Becoming Mom. “Our guests love that we use natural spa products and our specially trained staff is attentive to their needs at all stages of motherhood – before, during, and after pregnancy.”

    Osborne says that Becoming Mom offers many services that you can’t find elsewhere, especially not all under one roof. They offer 3D and 4D ultrasounds, where you can see your little one in higher definition than ever before, or find out the gender as early as 16 weeks. In the spa, they have unique services like a “Mom on the Go Manicure,” and “Pregnancy Enhancers” that help with anything from swollen feet to stretch marks. They even have an add-on to take an uninterrupted, candle-lit, aromatherapy nap after your spa service (every mom’s dream, right?).

    If you can’t hit the spa with your mom, or your mom friends, Osborne recommends purchasing an online gift certificate from Becoming Mom. “Our online gift certificates can be emailed instantly or you can buy now and set the date to be delivered on Mother’s Day,” says Osborne. “This is perfect for those busy families who want to check ‘Buy Mother’s Day Gift for Mom’ off their list!”

    Osborne says following their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram has its perks. For example, she says, they just alerted fans to a 3-day Mother’s Day special going on for Mother’s Day right now where their instant gift certificates are 20% off, with additional bonuses depending on the level you buy. You can visit to see a list of their current promotions.

    “We have special spa packages, discounts on services and products, free heartbeat recordings with our ultrasounds, and even a special Mother’s Day Bonus Gift Card special, which makes a great gift from the kids to mom,” Osborn explains.

    Becoming Mom is also giving you another chance to celebrate women in Cincinnati at its upcoming “Mommy Made Market” event this August. The event will include vendors, all of whom are local moms that create handmade products such as home decor, skincare and beauty items, clothing, accessories, and more.

    They’re working now to secure vendors. Osborne says you can email her at if you or someone you know would like to participate and sell your products. “We are really excited to celebrate and give these mommy makers a place to show off their talents,” adds Osborne.

    To follow along with Becoming Mom, check them out out on Facebook and Instagram. You can also visit to learn more about their services, products, and trained staff.

    Learn about some of the best gifts you can give your significant other (and yourself) this Valentine’s Day to truly show the love.


    Check out the best gift ideas for a mom-to-be this Valentine’s Day.

    The countdown is upon us, Cincinnati ladies. Valentine’s Day is almost here, and most of you are just hoping to survive the next 24 hours, never mind thinking about what to get your significant other for V-Day. HELLO, pregnancy brain, who can even remember what that thing was you were searching for on Amazon before you wandered into the kitchen, struck by errant cravings that needed to be satisfied immediately? #icecream #chocolate

    Where were we? Oh yes, Valentine’s Day. Depending on how far along you are on your journey to Becoming Mom, the echoes of the past filled with chic and racy lingerie and wine-fueled dinners are on hold. While our hearts melted for Mandy Moore on ‘This is Us’ as she danced around with her bra on the outside of her t-shirt for Jack’s birthday, beautiful belly on full display while pregnant with triplets, I think we can all agree we need some alternative options here, just in case!

    Gift One:

    Stress-Free and Happy – A Couples Massage for the Mommy and Daddy to Be

    Stress-free is sexy. Seriously, ask ANYONE. Hands down one of the best gifts you can give your partner: An experience to connect, relax, and be together in dim light, snuggled under soft blankets, with soft music floating all around out. Not to mention the soothing effect hot stones can have on your aching limbs, tired back, and sore feet.

    While you’re presenting this gift of togetherness to your husband, you still must make sure that you’re receiving a massage in a safe environment with staff trained in pregnancy massage. A Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist can address many of the issues you may face during your pregnancy, including sciatic nerve pain, round ligament pain, leg cramping, constipation, gas, heartburn, headaches, and stress. Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound is a Pregnancy spa, ultrasound imaging center, and maternity boutique that specializes in the journey to motherhood located in the Deerfield Town Center in Mason, Ohio.

    They have licensed and certified staff in prenatal massage therapy accredited by the NCBTMB. (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Body Work.)

    Becoming Mom has created a special package for couples this Valentine’s Day. It Includes a side-by-side 50-minute Pregnancy Massage for you and a Swedish Massage for him in adjoining rooms. For additional luxury, you can add on an enhancer like hot stones or a moisturizing Eco-Fin hand and foot treatment, or upgrade to 80-minute massages.

    Another benefit to going to a pregnancy spa like Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound are the specialized massage techniques and safety protocols they’ve developed for mom and baby. The treatment rooms contain customizable reclining tables or pregnancy support cushions for safe side positioning, and every product is pregnancy-safe and natural.

    Enough about you, this is still a gift for your significant other after all *cough*. His Swedish massage will occur in the same room, can be customized to address any pain points and issues that he might be having and the treatment table can be adjusted to any reclining position desired. Best of all he will get to experience a relaxing and stress-free massage gazing at your beautiful face, shoulders, and a sheet draped baby bump in dim lighting. It doesn’t get any better than that!

    Gift Two:

    Book a Date to Fall in Love: Time to Meet Your Baby

    You might be thinking that you’ve already given him the best Valentine’s Gift ever. You’re growing a human inside of you! What can top that? Well, what if you could book a date night he will never forget and surprise him (and you! ) by meeting your baby for the first time or finding out if the bun in the oven is a boy or a girl?

    With an elective ultrasound at Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound, you both can share in the experience of “seeing” your baby for the first time in the comfort of a spa environment with an ultrasound performed by a medical sonographer.

    Becoming Mom is the only Cincinnati area elective ultrasound center with the latest in 2D, 3D and HD technologies – a package for every stage of your pregnancy.  If gender determination is your ideal date night and you’re at least 16 weeks, the 2D Just Can’t Wait Package is a good fit. If you’re interested in a 3D or HD Package, you should be at least 23 weeks, and the Simply Sweet HD Ultrasound Package should be considered.

    Here are some guidelines:

    23-26 weeks: Baby’s facial features are starting to be defined, and you can see more of the baby at once.

    27-32 weeks: This is a good time for your second 3D ultrasound or if you’re only going to come in for one session during your pregnancy. Baby’s facial features are more defined, and the baby still has room to move around. However, because the baby is getting larger, you won’t see quite as much of him/her at once as you would earlier.

    33-36 weeks: The best time for beautiful facial shots IF baby “cooperates.” Please be aware that increased crowding in the womb does make it more challenging to get pictures.

    What to Do – How Do You Decide?

    As we have established, pregnancy brain is the real deal!  Decisions are hard and time is short. My suggestion is to go with the package YOU want most, because Happy Wife = Happy Life! But if you can’t decide, the Enjoy the Journey. package combines everything we chatted about – and saves you money! And i you combine that package with the Gift Certificate Special that Becoming Mom is running you can receive a FREE mom-on-the-go-facial to come back for at a later date. #score You really can’t beat saving money, receiving free stuff and finding the perfect present for your husband with a gift certificate at Becoming Mom. I don’t know about you, but this is my kind of shopping trip!

    Happy Valentine’s Day Mamas! Stay relaxed, have fun, enjoy connecting with your partner and treasure the moment you get to meet your little peanut. 

    The journey to becoming a mom is marathon you’ve just started. We can’t wait to share it with you! Want to buy an instant gift certificate, click here to select the special that works for you or book your appointment at 513-770-6730.

    Find out how this local spa for moms and moms-to-be can make your holidays (and body) feel brighter with new seasonal specials and services.

    Becoming Mom is offering seasonal packages to get you feeling primped and primed for the holiday season.
    Becoming Mom is offering seasonal packages to get you feeling primped and primed for the holiday season.

    For the past 12 years, Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound has offered 3D and 4D ultrasound as well as pregnancy-safe spa services for moms and moms-to-be. This year, they’re ringing in the holidays with new seasonal packages and services.

    From now until the end of the year, they’re offering a wide variety of special seasonal-specific packages. Allyson Osborne, general manager of Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound, told us a holiday favorite is the Sugar Plum and Mistletoes holiday package. It includes their Peppermint Pedicure and EcoFin moisturizing treatment topped off with a Farmaesthetics’ exfoliating lip scrub and softener.

    Another holiday favorite for clients, according to Osborne, is the Alone Time spa package, which includes time for a peaceful nap – surrounded by candle light and soothing music – after services. “Because what mom couldn’t use a little of that this holiday season,” she says. If you’re looking for some alone time with your sweetie, couples massages are on the menu as well.

    “As we enter into the hustle and bustle of the holidays it’s important to remember to take care of yourself,” Osborne says. “Many moms never take the time to rest and recharge which makes taking care of everyone else even harder.”

    Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound offers massages, body treatments, waxing, facials, pedicures and manicures. Some of which can be added to your ultrasound appointment. Their menu is designed around each stage of the pregnancy journey. And that includes post-pregnancy services like the Goodbye Stretchmarks massage enhancer. While you’re enjoying a spa service, be sure to also browse their pregnancy boutique, which carries a wide selection of products like pregnancy and postpartum support belts, designer diaper bags, skincare and breastfeeding supplies.

    According to Osborne, the Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound team is especially excited about the new tea line they’re carrying. “From morning sickness and heartburn to sleepless nights and breastfeeding challenges, we carry a blend of tea to help,” she adds.

    If you know someone with a mom or mom-to-be on their holiday shopping list, Osborne says to send them her way. “We love helping people find gifts and services that are perfect for loved ones,” she explains.

    Osborne adds that Becoming Mom Spa + Ultrasound recently upgraded their website to make it easier to buy gift certificates and services online. “You can buy specific services and packages, or by dollar amount,” she says. “These certificates can be sent to you or the recipient, and you also have the option to print them immediately or on a later date – like a birthday or anniversary – so you never miss a special occasion in the future.”

    Becoming Mom is located at 5485 Deerfield Blvd., Mason, Oh 45040 in the Deerfield Towne Centre. To learn more, visit
