The BEST Place for Moms
We are here for all parents from pregnancy through preschool, supporting you in your parenting journey with expert breastfeeding help, classes, and mom groups in Paradise, CA at 5923 Clark Rd Suite F, across from the library.
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 are raising our own families here.
We decided to start the BEST Place because we realized after the Camp Fire and Covid pandemic there's very little up here on the ridge to support parents and babies. We want to fill this gap and also be a part of bringing back Paradise!
We offer expert breastfeeding help (lactation consults) and mom/parenting groups 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 with NO COST to you for our lactation consults!
Meet The Team
Mikalia Dyer, IBCLC
Mikalia Dyer is an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) as well as a childbirth educator and doula. She also was an infant, toddler and preschool teacher before she had her own children. She has lived in Paradise since 2012. Mikalia and her husband are raising their 5 children here on the ridge. She has had a variety of different birth and breastfeeding experiences with each of her children and her struggles with her first (a preemie) were a big part of the reason she became an IBCLC in 2014.
She fully believes in helping parents to reach their own breastfeeding and parenting goals by supporting and empowering them with the tools and knowledge to be successful in their own parenting journey. She loves Paradise and the ridge and is proud to be a part of bringing it back!
Teresa Rein, RN, IBCLC
Teresa Rein graduated from nursing school in 1991, she worked in adult critical care but most of that
time she worked in pediatrics or mother baby care. In 2010 she became an IBCLC, having been inspired
by the care she received from an IBCLC herself after the birth of her first child who has special needs.
Teresa is excited to be helping and encouraging mothers with their lactation experience. Teresa has
been a Paradise Ridge resident for over 20 years and is looking forward to helping Paradise grow again with her business partner, Mikalia Dyer.
