Fetus emerges from Mom's womb to grasp Doctor's finger

“Thanks for the gift of life!”

21-week-old unborn baby Samuel Alexander Armas is being operated on by surgeon Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile. Little Samuel’s mother said they “wept for days when they saw the picture. She said, “The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness - it’s about a little person.” Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.
