If I were to give birth in Mexico, so that the father could be present during birth, would my child have to stay in Mexico or could he legally have US citizenship through me?

You would need to register the child's birth at the nearest U.S. Consulate in Mexico and apply for a U.S. passport. You will need evidence of your residence in the United States for at least ten years.

Definitely, have the child in the U.S. You will save yourself and the child a lot of problems. You can set up a link so that the father can see and speak with you during the birth.

When did you give birth? Most probably, your child is a USC by derivation.
