Thank you for your question

Your ex can indeed register the birth without your name going on the certificate

However this doe snot mean that it cannot be added later - nor does it mean that you will not have a relationship with the child.

the law says that a child is entitled to contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary

You should try and discuss matters with your ex using Family Mediation

If that fails then after the baby is born you will have to make an applictaion to the court for a Child Arrangement Order

Please ask if you need further details
