This remarkable photography is the work of photographer Michael Clancy who admitted that taking these photos changed his life.

The photos were taken during in utero surgery to correct a problem brought on by spina bifida. The fetus was named Samuel and was 21 weeks along at the time of surgery.

According to Clancy, "Samuel thrusts his tiny hand out of the surgical opening of his mother's uterus. As the doctor lifts his hand, Samuel reacts to the touch and squeezes the doctor's finger. As if testing for strength, the doctor shakes the tiny fist. Samuel held firm."

The following is a slide show of the surgery photos:
