It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single muslim man is in want of a muslim wife.

I'm not sure where to start, but lately I have been second guessing myself and
feel uncomfortable. I was so excited about my upcoming Internship, but now find myself
questioning, will I be a good Midwife? Will I do good at serving the woman I deal with?
Is this what Allah wants me to do?
Maybe I should explain I come from a very negative, non encouraging family.
This may be the reason for my doubts and fears. And it is a huge responsability
to be responsable for a mother and her unborn child.
Do any of you have any words of wisdom or Quran verses that would help me?
I was so excited but now find myself wondering if I am good enough and can I be good at this.
I'm truly not wanting to sound like a big baby Sad, But I am doubting myself.

Well, give yourself some credit sister!   Review why you wanted to be a midwife initially.  Every profession has its advantages/rewards and disadvantages. 

If the people around you are not supportive, then just tune them out. 

Reading Quran can always have a good calming effect insha'Allah.  Sura al-sharh (Chapter 94) is also very calming insah'Allah.  When faced with difficulty there  is a  dua that one can say to ask Allah to make things easy :"Allahuma la sahla illa ma ja'alta sahla, anta taj'alu al hazn sahla"  .

take care

You've been so looking forward to this and so excited about this, don't ruin it for yourself now.

The thing is, you will be given training, nobody is going to let you lose on mothers to be without first ensuring you have the knowledge and ability to take care of the mothers and babies.

At first if you're worried or unsure, ask your supervisors, and always begin each task with Bismillah.

It's a pretty amazing thing you're doing, you will be great at it inshallah.


Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Thank you Sisters for your kind words.
I'm still feeling last minute doubts and concerns and I do have a lot of
negativity in my life (the people around me, family)
I'll try ignoring their negativity.
One 70 y/o lady told me I was trying to live a 'pipe dream'
and was to old for this. I showed her on a google search the average age
of a midwife in the US is 47  Grin
I am 47 so by time I finish and take my state exame I'll be 48 and
just a year past the average, not to shabby Wink
It's amazing how other people don't realize their words
can cause people to not feel so great.
Takes away a persons joy.
