Is it normal to doubt myself as a father?

Anonymous
Even though I want to settle down and form a family with my girlfriend after finishing college, I'm doubting my abilities as a father. I'm scared of something happening to my child.

Ever since my younger sister once nearly drown on the pool while she was under my care for only an hour (I was 9 at the time; she was 4) and it caused her permanent fear of water, I'm scared of it happening again with my future child. I only took my eyes off her for a min and next thing I know she wasn't behind me anymore. She was sinking.
