A baby born in Phoenix, Ariz., was photographed during its birth via Caesarian section. The baby girl, named Nevaeh Atkins, reached from the womb and held a doctor's finger as the C-section was underway. The photo that captured this moment has gone viral.

Though the baby's mother is a professional photographer, the photo was taken by her proud dad Randy Atkins. Nevaeh was born in October.

"I was just in awe, you know, looking at it," said Atkins about the sight.

Alicia, Nevaeh's mom, recently posted the photo on Facebook, writing, "Truly amazing. I am in awe of this photo."

What do you think of the photo?
