(HUFFINGTON POST) In the midst of a C-section delivery, baby Nevaeh Atkins reached out of her mother’s womb and grabbed the doctor’s finger.

Father Randy Atkins’ quick camera work gave birth to a now-viral picture that Nevaeh’s mom, Alicia, called “truly amazing” on Facebook. “I am in awe of this photo,” wrote Alicia, who is the professional photographer in the family.

Alicia posted the image 10 weeks after the October delivery in a Phoenix-area hospital. “Dr. Sawyer broke my water and my daughter reached up out of my stomach and grabbed the Dr.’s finger and my hubby caught this special moment,” she wrote.
