(NaturalNews) It may seem odd to some and it's certainly not an ideal solution to everyone, but a French nurse has come up with a rather novel scheme to help gay couples provide their adopted infant children with a healthy start in life.

According to International Business Times, the nurse has placed an advertisement in local venues offering to rent out her breasts to gay couples who cannot feed their babies. Her breast service can be had for 100 (about $133) a day.

The ad, posted online, says she is a "young mother who is in good health."

The 29-year-old mother's ad has "caused a stir in France following the proposal as the European nation is divided over the gay marriage bill, which was passed earlier this year amid protests," the paper reported.

'Don't bother if you're not serious'

More from IBT:

The advertisement has been posted under the username "cecelia232" on the e-loue.com website. The post titled "Breast rental - breast-feeding - Boulogne", offers services in one of the neighborhoods on the outskirts of Paris.

"I am a young mother in full health, a trained nurse, 29 years old, and I'm renting out my breasts to feed young babies. In one day I can offer you up to a dozen feeds for your baby. Gay men in couples are not able to breastfeed their babies.... Breastfeeding allows babies to be in good health. Basically, breast milk gives them complete nutrition," says her post.

Needless to say, the ad has caught more than just a few peoples' attention. IBT reported that moderators of the site were initially uncomfortable with the nurse's ad, apparently contacting her to ensure that her offer was genuine.

"Contact me through the site. Don't bother if you're not serious," she said.

The next question is whether or not renting out breast milk somehow runs afoul of French law. The paper reported that French legal experts are divided over whether or not it's allowable, as it has raised questions about the potential for infection from the woman to children.

But apparently, the nurse's offer isn't the first of its kind. In 2011, when an attempt was made to source breast milk via Facebook, Professor Jean-Charles Picaud, president of the French Association of Human Milk Banks, and Professor Pierre-Henri Jarreau, president of the French Society of Neonatalogy, said in a joint statement, "These risks are mainly infectious, because the milk can be contaminated by bacteria or viruses."

'I don't want to waste my milk'

The notion of other mothers providing children with breast milk has really taken off in China, where it has become a booming online business, CNN reports:

Like many mothers, Yan breastfeeds her child. But she's also found a way of making it pay. After noticing she produces more than she needs, Yan -- who lives with her five-month-old baby in Shenyang, the capital of China's northern Liaoning Province -- decided to sell it.

"I don't want to waste my milk," she said. "I heard that others sell breast milk online, and I thought 'Why not sell mine?' I created a Web page and started my business."

CNN performed a search for "breast milk" on 58.com, a Chinese online shopping site, and it revealed "no shortage of mothers offering to sell their breast milk." In many of the country's urban centers, scores of mothers are selling.

"I just need to wait for calls," said Yan. "I provide fresh and frozen breast milk. But you have to pick it up yourself."

She says the market price for breast milk is about 5,000 RMB, or about $814, per month. So, though pricey, it's a much better option for children.

Maybe the French nurse will start a similar trend in her country.
