Found out my girlfriend was pregnant and we were very happy. Now all of a sudden she wants the kid and no sort of attachments with it and wants nothing to do with me. How does a person carry on from this point?

You put it rather bluntly, and maybe that's how the situation has happened to you. If she was truly your gf, and you were happy together, it doesn't make sense to suddenly dump you after discovering she's pregnant. She could claim financial maintenance from you, but you could legally claim access to the child. Can't you two talk this through and work it out together, or with the aid of a counsellor or family member ?
