Maternal and infant mortality rates are still a health problem in Indonesia. The factors that play a role are short distances between pregnancies, and too many children. To prevent this, long acting contraceptive use after delivery must be increased. The use of IUD is recommended as the most effective postpartum contraceptive method. Our aim was to find out the profile of postpartum IUD acceptors in mothers giving birth at the Balikpapan Army Hospital from November 2016 to November 2017. This study uses a retrospective descriptive method with secondary data sources. The data collected came from all mothers who gave birth and became postpartum IUD acceptors. The distribution of data displayed was age, amount of parity, education level, and previous contraception history. From the data sources obtained, found the total number of mothers giving birth was 642 people. The profiles of mothers who are acceptors are mostly women with an age range of 31-35 years as much as 52 %, the number of parity 1 child is 48 %, and the number of high school education is 68 %. The number of mothers who have used previous contraception was 56 %, with the most method being injectable contraception.
