Baby reaches out of the womb to touch doctor


PHOENIX, AZ (WWAY) -- As any mother can tell you, giving birth can be a blur. But every so often a picture brings it into crystal-clear focus and one image is getting a lot of attention online.

It's hauntingly beautiful. Unborn Naveah Atkins reaches out of her mother's womb and holds the finger of the doctor performing her c-section delivery.

Few lives will be as well documented as little Neveah's. Her mother, Alicia, is a professional photographer but it was her dad, Randy who snapped the pic. He said, "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."

Alicia gave her doctor a canvas print of the photo and after thousands of "likes" on Facebook, she's even gotten a few offers to buy the picture.

Alicia says she's going to hang a big canvas print of the picture in Neveah's room. And although she may someday sell prints, she'll never give up the copyright, which she says is priceless.

...the child was trying to tell the doctor..."Pull My Finger!"
Sell prints later of the pix?
As soon as those pics hit Google/Yahoo can copy and print them all day long...for free, minus the cost of the computer and internet, and of course...the printer and ink.
