Baby in womb grabs doctor's finger

'I just wanted to make sure I got the picture because it was so cool'

(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.
