Once she is born file for custody and child support with the courts. You do not need a lawyer to do so. The OAG will help you with child support.

I live in Alabama and Ive looked into child support and there's nothing I can really do until she gets here. I'm trying to have as much done before her birth so I'm not as stressed after. I cant really afford a lawyer and I don't know if there is someone I can just talk to about legal matters without charging. Thank you so much for replying!!!

Well, put him on the birth certificate so you can get child support and get a lawyer. What state do you leave in? That's pretty much abandonment.
