'Miracle mum' donates 5,000 pints of breast milk to help premature babies and gay dads feed newborns

A miracle mum has donated 5,000 pints of her own breast milk to help premature babies and gay dads feed their newborns.
The mother who loves donating her milk to less privileges 
Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra, 29, spends an incredible 10 hours a day pumping around 1.75 gallons of milk - ten times the average woman.

Selfless Elizabeth has been diagnosed with hyperlactation syndrome, which means she produces masses more milk than what is considered a 'normal' amount.

But she still manages to squeeze in feeding time for her own six-month-old daughter Sophia, before generously giving the rest to those more needy than herself.

After donating the precious liquid to mums who struggle to breast feed, premature babies and gay dads, Elizabeth says she has fed thousands of babies.

Her milk is packaged, labelled and stored in four huge freezers in the house where she lives with the girls and her husband, public safety officer David Sierra, 52.

The former U.S. Coast Guard, of Beaverton, Oregon, says producing the "liquid gold" is her "labor of love".

Elizabeth, also mum to two-year-old Isabella, said: "I realised I was an overproducer when I was pregnant with my first child, but when I had my second baby my supply ramped up.

"Now Sophia is six months old I pump five times a day - as soon as I wake up, after breakfast, after lunch, after dinner and again at midnight.

"I produce 70 to 80oz of milk during my first pump alone.

"In total I will spend around five hours a day just pumping and then with storing, labelling, sterilizing etcetera, I easily spent eight to ten hours.

"Pumping is not fun - it is uncomfortable and it hurts - but it is my labor of love.

"I've not had a day off in two-and-a-half years. It's more than a full-time job.

"It is instant gratification when I donate locally because I see the babies and I see them thriving.

"It will have helped thousands of children. The milk at the milk bank goes to micro pre-emies, so 1oz can feed three or four babies.

"I don't discriminate - I have donated to gay couples and to mothers who are on medication or had their breast removed due to breast cancer.

"It's an amazing feeling."
