Baby reaches out from womb, grabs doctor's finger

(KYTX/CNN) - As any mother can tell you, giving birth can be a blur. But every so often a picture brings it into crystal-clear focus.

Such an image is getting a lot of attention online. Little Nevaeh's dad is the one who snapped the picture of her reaching out of her mother's womb and holding the finger of the doctor performing her C-section delivery.

Neveah's dad, Randy, admits he was very nervous when he took the shot.

"The doctor called me over and said, hey, she's grabbing my finger, so I ran over there and just grabbed the shot, and I was just in awe looking at it, it was such an amazing picture," says Randy Atkins.

Mom, Alicia Atkins, adds "The doctor knew it was an amazing photo right away; he knew, the next day, that's all he could talk about for weeks."

Alicia gave her doctor a canvas print of the photo. She's also going to hang a big canvas print of the picture in Neveah's room-- who is the newest member to join the growing family of five.
