Health Amazing: Viral photo shows baby grabbing doctor’s finger from mother’s abdomen during C-section delivery

Baby Nevaeh couldn’t wait to say hello. The delivery room moment stunned parents and hospital staff.

Thursday, January 3, 2013, 10:25 AM

A baby reaches out for her doctor during what was expected to be a routine C-section.

A routine C-section turned memorable for an Arizona doctor when his tiny patient reached out of her mother’s abdomen during delivery and grabbed his finger.

The brief moment was captured by the baby’s father, Randy Atkins, who snapped a photo that has now gone viral.

“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,” Atkins told KTVK.

The baby, named Nevaeh, or Heaven spelled backwards, was born in October. At first her mother kept the photo private.

“We didn't think we were going to get such positive feedback. We thought we would get more negative ‘that's disgusting…’” Alicia Atkins said. “[Instead] everybody just thought it was the best thing in the world.”

Even those in the delivery room were stunned by the special moment.

“It was such an amazing photo. [Hospital staff] had possibly heard of it happening but they had never seen a photo of it,” said Atkins.

*I remember the baby who had surgery performed in utero, who reached his hand to touch his doctor. I think he's about 8 or so now.*

Absolutely awesome photo! However, I cannot express how sick of the name Nevaeh I am. I don't think there is a more cliche or over used name
