“Being able to turn that around and have that label removed in so many different stories has just been everything to me. These are the things that I focus on. These are the positives and why I continue doing what I do."

What is hyper-lactation syndrome?

Elisabeth suffers from hyperlactation syndrome, where milk overflow occurs because of increased milk production.

According to UK Healthcare, hyperlactation happens near the end of the first week of lactation. This means the body does not know how much milk the baby will need, producing extra. This usually gets better as the baby gets older.

“My body creates a lot of the hormone called prolactin and that is what drives milk production,” said Elisabeth.

According to the loving mom, she does not let any milk go to waste.

“There are a couple of ways to go about trying to tone down this production of prolactin. There are medical interventions that I would need to look into and move forward with in order to have it stop,” said Elisabeth.

Healthcare professionals also explored the possibility of a double mastectomy to remove all of the glandular tissue that is producing the milk.

“By removing all of that tissue, my body would not be producing any more milk. There will be no more milk ducts but there is the risk of additional tissue being developed because of the hormones that would still be going through my body," she added.

Meanwhile, Elisabeth will continue pumping, and she was pleasantly surprised and humbled to get the Guinness World Records title.
