I've read some stories of others doing this. They started by photographing friends' and family's births, and with their permission built up a portfolio to put onto their websites. Getting a review written by those you photograph to put on as testimonials may also help. I also think that a lot of birth photographers have a bit of personal history and what they believe about birth and what it means on the page. I think this is because people will naturally want to know a bit about the person they're inviting into their space.
I think a lot of it will be word of mouth and social media advertising. You've already got a family photography business, so you've got a potential client base in place already, you just need to get the word out.

Network! Birth Centre, maternity ward/pregnancy clinic, local doulas, if you have baby & kids markets/expos have a stall there, fb (especially local mums groups)... but probably the most valuable is word of mouth. The above post has some excellent advice!

Try and get on some directories, if your AIPP accredited they have one specific for birth.
I have in the past contacted a few midwife groups but didn't get much response, that was 18months ago...
Best way to start the portfolio is as suggested, try and get some friends on board to get a couple under your belt!
It's such a rewarding but sometimes long and exhausting field of photography, best of luck!!!
