Bad On Paper

May 24, 2023

This week we’re speaking with friend of the pod (and previous guest!) Ayana Lage! Ayana is a lifestyle blogger and freelance writer based in Tampa, Florida. She writes about motherhood, mental health, social justice, and everyday life, and she published a story titled, “Postpartum Psychosis Landed Me in a Psychiatric Ward for 17 Days. Now, I’m Ready to Share My Story.” for Cosmo in April 2023, and we’re excited to talk about her experience with her today! 


Content warning: we talk about postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis, and suicide in this episode, so please take care and skip this episode if you’re not in a place to listen!
