I agree with the others- your midwife would help you out with what you'd need... but I figured I'd throw some ideas your way anyways:
birthing tub - if you want. Ususally you can rent this from a local midwife or douhla.
essential oils and candles for relaxing
a music playlist
healthy and quick snacks, food, and coffee/tea for people who may need those.
handheld fan to use
straws for drinks
a yoga ball to sit on - also can be borrowed usually from your midwife or a douhla.
a home birth kit - which will include a suction, chuck pads, etc.
Just some ideas- obviously, mostly household items you probably already have.
