About The BEST Place for Moms
We hope just like our town name of Paradise that our business name, The BEST Place for Moms, will be everything our name implies!
Mikalia Dyer and Teresa Rein are both IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) which is the highest level of certification/education that exists with lactation. We have both lived on the ridge for many years and raised our own families here.
We decided to start the BEST Place because we both realized after the Camp Fire and Covid pandemic there's very little up here on the ridge to support parents and babies/young children. We want to fill this gap and also be a part of bringing back Paradise! We also want be here for our surrounding Butte County cities of Chico and Oroville!
We offer expert breastfeeding help (lactation consults), mom/parenting groups and classes to help you reach your breastfeeding and parenting goals and support you along the way! We are also planning to have mommy/parent and me classes from newborn through preschool age! We can even accept some insurances for our lactation consults!

“Mikalia is such an amazingly wonderful IBCLC! My youngest was having trouble gaining weight while breastfeeding and our pediatrician wasn’t as concerned as I felt he should be. I contacted Mikalia and she was able to fit me into her schedule on super short notice and spent several hours with me going over possibilities. Her explanations were wonderfully clear and she helped me put together a clear game plan. She also sent a thorough report I was able to provide to our pediatrician, and she was able to provide me with helpful videos when I was out of town and having issues.
When my baby still wasn’t improving, and refusing all bottles, she helped me trial a few alternative feeding options. When those didn’t work she advised us to head to the ER. My daughter ended up having some serious health issues that were missed by other providers, but Mikalia knew something was wrong. I ended up switching to pumping full time, and Mikalia was able to help me with finding the right pump, fitting parts, and adding gadgets for comfort as well. She is such an enormously wonderful asset to mamas and parents in general, not just for breastfeeding! She is caring, thoughtful, thorough, incredibly intelligent, and quick to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. I could not recommend her highly enough and know my daughter and I couldn’t have made it through our issues without her!”
