Mom Spends 10 Hours a Day at Her Full Time Job, Pumping Breast Milk for Milk Banks

Imagine having a medical condition that potentially could make your life miserable but you use it as a force for good. Meet Beaverton, Oregon resident Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra – a mom-of-two who has hyper lactation syndrome.

Yes, that means exactly what you think it does. The 29-year-old produces a lot of breast milk – A LOT. Her 6-month-old daughter Sophia drinks 20-28 ounces a day but she produces 10 times that amount (an average of 225 ounces daily, which is 1.7 gallons). So what does she do with the extra milk?
