This was taken at Vanderbilt University Memphis Tn where a Doctor did early surgery on an infant in the uterus, repairing Spina Bifida and the baby kept reaching out and grabbing the surgeon's finger. He would pat his little hand then put it back and continue surgery and the baby would reach out again grabbing his finger. How precious!!!
This photograph has been doing the rounds on social media for the last few months, but what's really going on? A Greek doctor snapped this amazing image during a caesarian section. Unusually, the amniotic sac remained intact as the birth progressed. Typically it breaks, but this time it did not -leading to the baby not even being aware it had been born. Until the amniotic sac breaks, the baby will continue to receive oxygen and nutrients from the placenta. This baby was born safe and healthy.
