    Welcome to Using English, sophie.

    I hope [that ] she feels better.

    You don't have to use the "that" but it makes it clear that you are introducing a clause with it's own subject, and therefore you use the subject form of the pronoun, wihch is "she."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
