In addition to your list,
Straws, made it easier to drink post c section
Eight bottles of lucozade sport, amazing post recovery
Your own pillow
Lots and lots and lots of breakfast bars, both in your bag and in the house. I think I mostly lived on them for weeks.
I also second the meals in the freezer, we had a week worth of beef stew in the freezer which was worth its weight in gold.
Maybe an eye mask for sleeping in the hospital?

Wet toilet tissue, a must after stitches!

You're taking a lot of stuff!

I've heard lip balm is a must!

A drink bottle with a straw so DH can offer it and you can drink without the effort of tilting your head whilst on labour.

Hot water bottle - I found it amazing on my lower back when in the depths of contractions.
