Maryann Robbins

Placement Director

Maryann was born in Methuen, MA and grew up on a farm in New Hampshire before relocating to Phoenix, AZ over ten years ago. Children are at the foundation of her career - every single professional role she has held has been related to the well-being of children. Her mother even used to host La Leche League meetings at their home when she was a child. She received her Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education while working as a preschool teacher and soon learned that her passion laid with working with children and families in more close-knit settings. She transitioned to professional nanny work and still keeps in touch with the families she worked with over twenty years ago. She is a CACHE Certified Newborn Care Specialist, CAPPA trained Postpartum Doula, and Lactation Educator.

Maryann founded and still runs the largest and longest-running nationwide overnight newborn care specialist group with over 3,000 members. She has been a pillar of support to the NCS and postpartum community, and sees her involvement with The Newborn Care Solutions Agency as a natural progression in her life’s work to supporting parents and children, and values the once-in-a-lifetime experiences and travel opportunities over the course of her career. We are grateful to have Maryann’s knowledge, empathy, and skills as the backbone of our agency.

Maryann lives in Phoenix and, in her free time, enjoys taking fitness classes, cooking, laughing with friends, traveling, and seeing live music.

Todd & Tonya Sakowicz

Founders of Newborn Care Solutions

After a successful career as a newborn care specialist and owning a nanny agency in Seattle, Tonya turned her focus towards professionalizing, empowering and developing the newborn care specialist community. Together with her husband Todd, she founded Newborn Care Solutions in 2015. Todd, her biggest cheerleader, saw the potential in the vision and its early success, and left a career in real estate and business consulting to provide strategy, the technological know-how and business acumen to support Tonya’s science-backed, educationally-focused organization.

Since its inception, Newborn Care Solutions has trained over 5k newborn care specialists, won multiple awards, and several press interviews and mentions. Tonya has received accolades from DEMA, INA, business coaching programs and more.

As parents themselves, Todd and Tonya understand your desire to provide exceptional care for your children and are excited to utilize their resources and expertise to their greatest passion: seeing babies thrive!
