Infant Nevaeh Atkins must have decided that her momma needed a little help getting her out into the world. The baby girl — in the midst of her C-section delivery — reached out of the womb to grab her doctor’s finger.

The doctor delivering their baby, Allan Sawyer, brought it to the attention of Randy, Nevaeh’s father, who was there in a flash to snap the powerful shot while Nevaeh was being born on October 9. The photo has now gone viral, garnering thousands of likes and shares. Randy tells CBS 6, “I was just in awe looking at it, it was such an amazing picture.”

Mom, Alicia, posted the precious moment ten weeks later on the Facebook page of her Glendale, Arizona, photography company, calling it “truly amazing… something to remember forever.”

We’ll say!
