Sana Sana colita de rana. Si no sanas hoy, sanarás mañana is a popular nursery rhyme in the Spanish language. It’s sung when a child bumps their elbow or otherwise hurts themselves. Its literal translation is “Heal heal little frog’s tail. If you don’t heal today, you will heal tomorrow,” We decided to call the Perinatal Peer Support program Sana Sana because new and expectant parents often need healing too.
