I'm going to be starting the contract phase and have a question I hope someone experienced might answer.
I'm single and I know I need a support person to accompany me for the transfer to help me out while I'm on the bed rest. I know that if it were a husband/spouse the contract would cover the spouses' lost wages. But I realize that the spouse is a signer on the contract.
Would my contract as a single woman cover the lost wages of my support person?
I know that the transfer fee is used to cover the costs of daycare for my child while I'm out of town and on bedrest for three days. I plan on having my mom take care of my son while I travel the 5 hours away to the clinic for the transfer. I thought that I should use another support person because my child is young and needs a lot of attention. I also didn't think the clinic would want my support person also towing along my 1 year old.
Another friend has offered to go along with me, but might have to miss work to travel with me. She doesn't expect me to compensate her for coming with me, but I wonder if this is something IP's normally take care of?
