You need to leave the UK before your visitor visa expires.

Also I don't think you will be entitled to free NHS treatment, so if you did give birth here you may well receive a large bill.

You are better to return home and apply for a fiancee visa (you've asked about it in other threads) and get married. This will allow you to stay here and receive free healthcare.

(BTW This is in the wrong place - it should be elsewhere)
