Poetess. Mama Muse. Pregnancy Pathfinder.

Jaycina Almond has a way with words. Whether it’s preparing a parent for pregnancy or healing heartbreaks through her poetry, Jaycina practices what she preaches. Her first book, In No Particular Order is a poetic diary and selection of sketches that gives readers a glimpse into the triumphs and transitions of her life. The most life changing chapter, was the birth of her daughter Syx Rose Valentine in 2017.

Marveling at the magic of motherhood, Jaycina longed for a way to help new moms with the flexibility to continue mothering and modeling. Tender; a trimester focused pregnancy subscription box service, was conceived by Jaycina’s passion of pregnancy. Tailored to all four terms of pregnancy (the fourth being post-partum), Tender provides new moms with curated self-care goods and to ease the journey into motherhood. As a model citizen of motherhood, Jaycina’s modeling career developed into full time after the birth of her daughter when she signed with her first agency when Syx was only 8 months old. It seems having her daughter was the birth of Jaycina’s passions, as some of her biggest campaigns like Doen, For Love & Lemons, have included her daughter.

Balancing book releases, bookings, and birth-work; Jaycina is a true supermom.

Inspired. Inspiring. Visionary.
