We don’t know of any other similar “team” birth occurrence, so please report on dressage-news Facebook page if you do.

We are aware, however, that Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, team and individual gold medalist for Germany at the Tokyo Games, and Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu on the Canadian team at the same Olympics are each expecting their second child around the time of the world championships in August.
