You can adopt your child out before it is born. However, I suggest you don't do this and wait until that child is born. If you have family support or even friends that will be there for you then please take the chance of raising your child if you can. Now, you only feel this is a big problem, but once you give birth there is something inside most new mothers that takes over and it's called "bonding." Don't do something you'll regret later. If you have seriously thought about this and realize you have little to no support raising this child or don't have the money, then you can talk to your doctor and give up your baby for adoption. Once the baby is born the adoption agency will come in (and hopefully as far they are concerned) not let you see that baby after birth. However, you DO HAVE THE RIGHT to see your baby! It's a difficult separation at best. Once the baby is adopted you no longer have legal rights and may well never see that child again unless at their legal age they can come looking for you. Each State is different in this law.

No. There can be no legal custody actions taken until the child is born.

It's legal but you have no legal claim on them, or to them.

tell the person who you are having a baby with and then give up your rights.

From a legal standpoint, a father has no rights over the unborn child. Roe vs. Wade took care of that. But if the mother decides on having the baby, the father becomes responsible. * Any parent can file a Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) petition in the appropriate state court in the city or county of residence. Such a petition cannot be filed nor can child support or custodial issues be addressed until the child is born and paternity has been established.
