Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
In these circumstance I am afraid that you have no rights until the child is born
Once the child is born you can apply to have your name added to the Birth Certificate as you are the biological parent
The Court application can be made with a request that the dWP release her address TO THE COURT for service
You can then also deal with obtaining a Child Arrangement Order so that you can spend time with the child.
Please ask if you need further details
