No, there would not be any legal way to file a paternity action for a child that is still in eutero (unborn). Until a child is born a father has no legal rights to any type of custody because up until the birth, the mother could decide to terminate the pregnancy or she could have a miscarriage. Since there is no guarantee that a child will survive the pregnancy, a father can't obtain any type of legal rights over the child until there is a live birth.
