"What a man, what a genius."

This viral video shows the fascinating moment a doctor uses his hands to turn a baby in breech position.

The doctor, a medical practitioner at the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton, England, performed an external cephalic version (EVC) by simply massaging the mom-to-be's tummy.

Before he flips the baby, he warns the woman that the procedure is going to be uncomfortable.

"If you cannot tolerate it, just say so," he warns the woman, who is 36 weeks pregnant.

Using just his hands, he goes on to turn the fetus so that its head is facing down.

"It felt funny," the mom is heard saying.

"What a man, what a genius," says the person holding the camera after the procedure.

"You could see her turning. That was amazing."

The fascinating video has been viewed more than 2 million views.
