Parents of a growing family of 5, Alicia and Randy Atkins were shocked when their unborn child did the most amazing and beautiful thing during her delivery.
Although mother Alicia is the professional photographer of the family, it was father Randy who captured the incredible moment his unborn daughter, Neveah Atkins, reached out from her mother’s womb and grabbed Dr. Sawyer’s finger, just as he was performing her C-section delivery.
“I’ve delivered about 9,000 babies and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture like that before.”
Dr. Allan Sawyer said that right there in middle of C-section, the baby reached out of the womb and grabbed his finger after he touched her palm during the procedure.
Dr. Sawyer called the baby’s father over right away to take a photograph of the precious moment, which may have never occurred or been recorded before.
According to the Huffington Post, Alicia, mother of 3, said in a Facebook post:
“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.”
The photograph perfectly captures the entrance of life into the world and is reminiscent of Michaelangelo’s, “The Creation of Adam” in the Sistine Chapel.
The Atkins’ family gifted Dr. Sawyer a canvas print of the photograph, which he displays in one of exam rooms.
