Yes, you decide who is or isn't in the delivery room. His legal rights to the child do not extend to the delivery room. However, once the baby is born, he has as much right to it as you do. You cannot keep him from seeing his baby unless you have a court order and even then, you need a good reason to deny someone their rights.

Im not divorced and your ex husband is not the father of the child whos name can go on the birth certificate?

The name of the actual father of the child should go on the birth certificate. If you are not legally divorced, then your legal husband would be automatically considered to be the child's father by law. If the child has a different father, he can complete a voluntary acknowledgement of the paternity of a child, in which he signs that he is the child's father and is therefore put on the birth certificate and named as the legal father. The hospital will help with this after the baby is born.

You can have a simple swab test done on the baby and the potential father(s). They do it on the inside of the mouth so no blood test is needed. Speak to your doctor or tell them at the hospital before you go home (if the father is there). If he refuses you can get a court order for a test to be taken.
