The Imprinted Legacy|How to pass down health as a family legacy
About This Show
Welcome to The Imprinted Legacy Podcast! I am your host Erin Smith. This podcast is for makers of babies, health professionals, organizations, community leaders, and researchers. Imprinted Legacy was created to be the bridge that connects research discovery to implementation to common knowledge by the general public.
On average it takes 17 years for research discovery to be implemented into clinical practice and known as common knowledge by the public at large. I am here to bring you the most up to date information in the field of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease by interviewing researchers and field experts. This podcast is the first and the only of its kind focusing on Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD), the field that is changing the face of medicine as we know it. Together we are helping families "imprint a legacy of health" for their future generations one episode at a time.
Here you will find out the whys, the hows, and what to dos to have a healthy baby and future grandchildren. Together we revolutionize health for every generation in the present and future.

28. Angela Heap shares how critical preconception health is for the long-term health of your family
Angela Heap shares with us how preconception health is crucial in getting things right for the best start to life and long-term good health for our children and the generations to follow. Angela also discusses her philosophy on fertility, which is not about point and fire. It’s about you preparing for that child because life is a marathon not fast race. She recommends that couples prepare for 70 days at a minimum because that is how long it takes for new sperm to develop and likewise for women to improve the health of the egg(s) that will be released. Angela also discusses fertility while a woman is considered to be at an advanced maternal age. She says that at any age, for men and women, you can be as healthy as you possibly can through decreasing toxin exposure, managing stress levels, and eating quality nutrition. If these things are done, there is no reason why you can’t have a healthy baby. Angela also dives in to share how couples can maintain intimacy while they are trying to have a baby because intimacy can easily become work and therefore diminish the pleasure. Now is a good time to learn how to maintain intimacy in the relationship because it will continue to get more difficult after having a baby. “Do the prep work and lay the foundation of long-term health for yourself and your baby.” –Angela Heap
