Breast Milk 'Goddess' Pumped Out 200k Ounces of Liquid Gold Over 4 Years | New York Post

15 Views · Published on Thu, 09 May 2019 · INTERNET TV CLIPS

This woman’s milk production is a cut above the “breast.” Meet Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra, an extreme breast milk donor outside Portland, Oregon, who has shared over 200,000 ounces of her “liquid gold” with families in need — all at bargain-bin rates. She’s turned her hyperlactation syndrome into a thriving operation. #breast #milk #donor #portland #oregon #LiquidGold #goddess #pumping #donation #breastmilk #nypost #newyorkpost While the “pumping goddess” has become a one-of-a-kind social media influencer, her fame has also brought bizarre fetishists, breast milk-drinking bodybuilders and even robbers to her doorstep. Anderson-Sierra’s extraordinary story includes her year-long donation to baby Joaquin, whose mother died during Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. From "Extreme breast milk donor has been pumping 4 years straight" - https://nypost.com/2019/05/09/extreme-breast-milk-donor-has-been-pumping-4-years-straight/ This breast-feeding Portland mom has only two kids of her own, but she’s breaking records for feeding hundreds more. Along with her two daughters, Isabella, 4 and Sophia, 2, Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra estimates she’s fed about 250 other babies with her breast milk, which she donates or sells at one dollar per ounce via a Facebook page, a common platform for the breast-milk black market. The 31-year-old claims she’s an unofficial world-record holder for the number of ounces donated: In 2018, the official Guinness World Record was 53,081 ounces, but Anderson-Sierra tells The Post that to date she’s donated about 200,000. Anderson-Sierra has hyperlactation syndrome, which causes her to produce 230 ounces of milk per day. That’s about eight times more than the average pumping mother, says Dr. Linda Dahl, a Midtown-based breast-feeding expert and ENT, who consults many over-producers in her practice. “It’s like they don’t have an off-switch,” Dahl says. “It’s a combination of hormones, and I bet most of her breast is made of glandular (milk-producing) tissue.” The sale and private donation of breast milk is largely unregulated, but Anderson-Sierra could be held liable if her donations cause any harm or sickness.

Anderson-Sierra says that she’s seen costs of up to $10 an ounce, while she charges just a dollar per ounce. Anderson-Sierra, who keeps frozen bricks of breast milk in industrial-size freezers in her garage, connects with clients through social media. Kathy Yao, a mother of triplets who welcomed her babies through a surrogate, is grateful for Anderson-Sierra’s milk.
