There isn't alot you can do in advance other than keeping yourself healthy and eating well.
The best thing you can do is get baby to breast as soon as possible after birth and nurse as as often as your baby needs. Avoid bottles and pacifiers, let your baby use you for that.
Infants feed alot and can seem like they are always hungry making moms think there supply is inadequate, however by supplementing you will tell your body you don't need more milk and it ends up reducing your supply. It's a downward spiral.
Trust your body and baby to provide milk for your baby. Good luck
