A photograph that shows a baby girl- still inside her mother's womb- grabbing a doctor's hand, has gone viral on the internet.

When Alicia Atkins of Glendale, Arizona, was undergoing a routine C-section in October, her baby girl reached up and grabbed her doctor's finger, while she was still in her mother's womb.

Realizing how special the moment was, Dr. Allen Sawyer called to her husband Randy to get the camera and capture the special moment, Fox News reported.

Atkins shared the remarkable photo on her business, A Classic Pin-Up Photography's Facebook page the day after Christmas, and it has since been shared more than 2,000 times.

She said that she had not expected the photo to become as popular as it has become. (ANI)
