No one apart from the mother can obtain "custody" of a fetus. Custody battles must wait until the child has been born.

The biological mother always retains custodial rights to a child when the couple are unmarried, until paternity is established and the biological father petitions the court for custodial or visitation rights.

What do you do if a mother wants to sign over her rights to you for her unborn child?

No one can sign over rights on an unborn child. If you want custody, after the child is born, if the state where the mother legally resides allows for voluntary termination of parental rights, she may petition the court for a change of custody or again, as mandated by law, you may petition for custody. There will be a hearing, and investigation and after everything is concluded, you will be given custody of the child if the court feels it would be in the child's best interests.
