This study compares two key outcomes of PPIUCD insertions-expulsion and infection-for physicians and nurses/midwives to generate evidence for successful task sharing. Specially trained nurses and midwives who conduct deliveries at public health facilities can perform PPIUCD insertions as safely as physicians. Implications Institutional deliveries are increasing in India, but most normal vaginal deliveries at public health facilities are attended by nurses and midwives due to a shortage of physicians. Task sharing with nurses and midwives can increase women's access to and the acceptability of good-quality PPIUCD services.
