Painkillers!

Lots of water, fruit and lactulose. Trust me you don't want constipation in the days after c-section.

I found a support garment helped.

Freeze some healthy dinners for after the birth, you really won't feel like cooking.

Get a cleaner if your DP is not good at housework. Domestic chores are NOT your job for at least 6 weeks post CS

I put lavender essential oil on my scar and it healed really well. Don't lift anything too heavy. The only thing I now wonder about is if I could have massaged it at some later date to prevent scar tissue inside.
