From a dads POV- When she wants to do it alone

Hey everyone... I am going to be a dad in 6 months and right now me and the mother are not in a relationship. All I want is to be there for her and the baby, I think I love her but she does not love me back and would prefer to do it alone.

We have a good relationship in that we can talk, we hang out and usually have fun together. I would be able to accept this as how its going to be but she is going away to study in 2 weeks and I am worried she will not come back after the baby is born. I have tried to talk to her about the hardship she will face as a single mum but she just says that I am being negative and that there are many people that manage to do it alone. She does not think that a child needs to be brought up in a stable family environment, in fact she doesn't believe there is such a thing.

I am just worried that I will not be able to see my child grow up, I want to be part of its life. Right now I feel like I would do anything for the baby but I am just not aloud to...what should my next step be and am I just being selfish (which is what she implied)
