"A Biosimilar form of recombinant activated factor VII (AryoSeven) is manufacturing by AryoGen Biopharma and since 2012 is available in the market." 

It is my understanding that recombinant products are classed as synthetic thus it is an individual's choice. The NATA ( Network for Advancement of Transfusion Alternatives ) website has an article that might interest you www.nataonline.com/node/18921      If you can't link to it the front page of nataonline.com has it listed.

Don't believe that just because you are pregnant or are having twins that you will be in danger of bleeding. Our bodies are made magnificently. Being a Jehovah's Witness you are at a plus because you don't drink, smoke, or take drugs. Wine is alcohol, better to not drink it either, especially in pregnancy. Eat fresh, spinach, carrots, beets, etc. Build your blood with herbs you can look up online and learn about...it is your responsibility, don't expect anyone to tell you. There are great books about building blood. Find them. Herbs are the best and fastest way added to what you eat daily! May your birth be all you are looking forward to.
