Best jeans for post c-section tummy?

I'm 5 foot 2, pear shape. Usually wear stretchy skinnies but currently I'm too small for my maternity jeans, they fall down, and although I can get my pre-maternity jeans back on they're a bit snugger than I'd like and dig into my scar a bit because of this when I sit down.
Looking to buy a couple of pairs to tide me over until I can start running again and stop living on biscuits...

Any recs?

I bought some highish waist jeggings from Asda to tide me over a similar phase.

I bought high waisted leggings (so comfy and can get them in different colours). The thought of jeans (even maternity over the bump jeans) made me feel uncomfortable!!

Jessie from Matalan are what you need about £16 a pair and sit high up so not on your scar (I had a EMCS last March).

I love them and have 4 pairs. I am currently fat, 5’8” and 84kg but these are super comfy (high wasted) and smart enough in dark blue to wear with a shirt to work (I work in corporate comms for a Fortune 500 so fairly smart required...), I don’t wear anything else!
