What to expect at your first visit

This first appointment can be exciting and overwhelming, so it may be a good idea to have a list of questions prepared.
At your initial prenatal appointment, your OBGYN in Alpharetta will check your vitals. This will include checking your weight, blood pressure, and heart rate.
