Postnatal physiotherapy

Claire Ryan is an Australian trained Physiotherapist working in the area of Women’s, Men’s, & Pelvic Health. Claire has worked in an array of both public and private hospital and clinic settings in Brisbane, London, and currently practices on the Gold Coast, Australia. With over 10 years experience in this field this is truely where her passion and expertise lies.


Throughout Claire’s time working in the area of Pelvic Health she has delivered high quality care to various populations including antenatal & postnatal, gynaecological, urological, colorectal, and men’s health. She has worked as part of maternity, urogynaecological, and colorectal multidisciplinary teams in tertiary hospitals and has been a Senior Pelvic Health Physiotherapist in these settings.


Claire prides herself on keeping up to date with the latest evidence to know she is providing the best care to people she sees. She has completed an extensive amount of post graduate training in the area of Women’s and Men’s Health and uses this plus her clinical experience to get great clinical outcomes.

Another passion Claire has is in the area of antenatal education & birth preparation as well as postnatal recovery. She endeavours to make this journey informative and positive and loves keeping clients active and strong through this stage in their lives.

Claire has been teaching pilates for 10 years and teaches a combination of private and group classes across the Gold Coast.  After being pregnant herself and having her daughter Claire now believes more than ever that pilates offers significant benefits in the pregnancy and postnatal journey. Although this, she recognised a gap in the pilates market in which instructors are not confident with this clientele. In 2023 she launched Women's Health Collaborative which offers an Antenatal and Postnatal Pilates Teacher Training to combine her expertise in both Women's Health and Pilates. 

When Claire isn’t working you will find her spending time with her husband and little girl. She loves being active herself and she aims to move her body daily. She is an avid runner and combines this with pilates to get the best of both worlds.


Claire looks forward to meeting you soon.
