When she decides not to tell any adults, it's up to her classmates to help her through this ordeal. (Note: This is not loli. Sex happens off-screen and the artwork is not fan-servicey.)

Chapter Summary: Haruna's classmates agreed to take turns watching baby Hajime, but the novelty begins to wear off pretty quickly. Meanwhile, Haruna's grandpa walks in on her in the shed with the baby…

Exactly: a great job and amazing to see how they are trying to find a way to take care of Hajime. How can no-one suspect what has happened?
Haruna was extremely well after going to this ordeal of labor and birth. But when you realise what some mothers (even those who have commited infanticide!) are capable of just after giving birth it is not so impossible. But Haruna is only 11 years old.
In the movie she was exhausted and still weary when she got home after the birth, I guess this is more realistic.
But anyway, it is a manga and you do a wonderful job on scanlating and translating this
PS Grandpa's condition seems to have worsened since his wife died

I think no one suspects because they just can't imagine it happening. To them, these are little kids, so the thought of anyone even being pregnant doesn't enter their minds (like when the parents all just laughed at the kids' rumors about Haruna in an earlier chapter).

My own mom had a super easy labor when she was pregnant with me. Her labor was very short and easy, and she left the clinic where she gave birth immediately afterwards and was over at my grandparents' house showing me off within an hour!
