This is an observational study in which patients who have been prescribed Néevo®/NéevoDHA® are invited to participate in surveys about their pregnancy and experiences with Néevo®/NéevoDHA®. The purpose of this study is to increase the understanding of the role of L-methylfolate among patients who are candidates for Néevo®/NéevoDHA®, provide patients with personalized education and support during their pregnancies, and contribute to the overall understanding of the needs and concerns of women facing intermediate- to high-risk pregnancies.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Subjects who have been prescribed Néevo/NéevoDHA® daily.
Other: Néevo®/ NéevoDHA®
Néevo®/NéevoDHA® is an orally administered medical food indicated for the dietary management of impaired metabolic processes in women under a doctor's care who face high to intermediate risk pregnancies and are unable to fully metabolize or absorb folic acid. Néevo®/ NéevoDHA® contains L-methylfolate, the biologically active and immediately bioavailable form of folate.

Detailed Description:

Surveys used to conduct this study will be administered via telephone or online by InfoMedics, Inc., a company with a system for developing such patient-physician feedback programs. Participating physicians will ask their patients to participate in the program after Néevo®/NéevoDHA® has been prescribed and provide them with a patient brochure containing an introduction to the program and instructions on how to enroll. Patients interested in participating self-enroll, take a brief survey before starting their Néevo®/NéevoDHA® prescription, and then a follow-up survey 4 weeks after they have started taking Néevo®/NéevoDHA®. As patients complete surveys within the study, their physician will receive individualized feedback reports outlining their patient's treatment experience and progress. Patients will also receive a copy of their own reports, to help encourage them to continue taking Néevo®/NéevoDHA® as directed. Patients will also receive educational materials about diet and nutrition during pregnancy.
