Mother’s Milk

by | 24th, July 2003

‘A NEW Zealand prostitute is offering customers an extra service at the brothel where she works – fresh breast milk.

The 25-year-old, who gave birth six weeks ago, said the idea was suggested by a client and claimed business was booming since she started advertising the service.

However, fears have been raised about the hygiene implications of what she is doing.

La Leche League director Rosemary Gordon warned that there could be a risk of infectious diseases, like herpes, hepatitis and tuberculosis, being spread through cross-infection between the baby, clients and the mother.

But the prostitute, who goes by the name of Brooke, insists she washes herself with hot salt water and showers before feeding her son, and does not believe there was a risk of cross-infection.

‘My kid comes first,’ she said.’
