I can run off a few things for you, I'm sure others will add to it!
for you- mini toiletrys(takes up less space in your case),towels,2 nightgowns,slippers,high waisted knickers and a lot of them as you'll use at least 6 a day, maternity sanitary towels,few pairs of socks, wireless bra, loose comfy clothes to go home in, again high wasisted.
for baby- 8 vests, 8 sleep suits, mittens and hats, pack of nappys, cotton wool balls. Pack 2 bags for baby and leave one at home so if you need to stay longer your partner can just grab it if you need it when he pops home

Yeah I packed 6 pairs, had to send my mum to asda to buy more lol best to pack plenty, the maternity disposable knickers are good too for when your bleeding heavy, you can just rip them off and bin em

All the best for today, I had a c section last October and found bleeding was not too bad, make sure you have some yummy treats in your bag for after the c section....hospital food is not the best ???? another good one is eye mask and ear plugs! If your not lucky enough to have your own room....Some time a ward of 4 to 6 beds of other people crying and screaming babies and mums snoring all night might just get to you ???? I didn't think I'd use mine but was surprised how much I used them hahaha
All the best and enjoy xxx
