In brief: Several options
An iud can be placed by a specialist who has been appropriately trained and does so safely.
These include physicians, certified nurse midwives, certified physician assistants, & nurse practitioners. I've trained many mid-level providers and they perform an excellent job with this very effective form of birth control. I hope that helps.
