No TROs or criminal complaints have been filed against him. I choose to only contact him about the child. Our baby is still born and I want to know if he has any rights to be there when I am induced or see the child after I deliver him. He and I are not married. I am going to tell him about the stillbirth as I found out today, but I do not want him near me or this baby after I deliver. Any help/advice is appreciated
If the person was the father, I believe he would still have the same parental right to attend to the stillborn infant just as if the child was born live, absent any type of restraints, which you say do not exist. But this is not an issue I have seen arise in my practice, so there might be hospital issues, etc. Obviously, you would not have to see the father.

I'm sorry for your loss. It must not be an easy time. If you are not married, it would be difficult for him to assert paternity for the child. If you do not allow him near you, I do not think the hospital will object.
