I think that getting doctors to tell their patients to join would be a great tactic. I'm thinking about how I would get doctors to join though- maybe by having flyers at hospitals. It can also be advertised in pregnancy classes like lamaze or parenting classes.
I'm thinking it would be on a more volunteer basis. I'm sure that many doctors would be willing to help give advice without compensation. I haven't completely thought of how I would get doctors on board with this, so thanks for posing the question. Perhaps I could hand out flyers at hospitals
