(Scroll down for video) Some women have been making a lot of money by selling their bodies in states where it is legal to do so.
One woman came up with a unique way to make money legally by renting out her body for babies.
A few weeks after a divisive same-sex marriage law was passed, gay people can marry and legally adopt a baby. One French mother is taking advantage of the opportunity by offering to rent her breasts to homosexual male couples, who choose to adopt a baby.
So far, it is reportedly still illegal for gay couples to use a surrogate or assisted reproduction to have a biological baby.
The 29-years-old mother is a trained nurse. She advertised her services as a benefit to the health of newborns. The classified advertisement was published on e-Ione, a website that offers products and services for rent. The woman goes by the name “cecilia232”. She lives in the Paris suburb of Boulogne.
She wrote: “I am a young mother in good health, and a trained nurse aged 29. I renting my breasts to suckle newborns. In one day, I can offer your baby up to 10 feedings. Gay males do not have a chance to breastfeed their babies, however, breastfeeding helps improve the baby’s health. Mother’s milk provides comprehensive nourishment. Contact me via this site. Those who are not serious should stay away,” she wrote.
The price for one hour of nursing is $25. A full day of nursing is about $133 and $665 for a week of nursing. Wet-nursing, where a person hands over their baby to a woman to nurse the child, used to be relatively common, especially among wealthy families.
The tradition still is practiced in some countries, but has been almost completely abandoned in the West were infant formula are readily available to babies, whose mothers cannot or choose not to breastfeed.
