The story is based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s own experiences with postnatal depression. Just like the narrator in The Yellow Wallpaper, she was also prescribed “rest cure”. Her doctor, Weir Mitchell, is actually mentioned by name in the narrator’s story as well. “Rest cure” was very detrimental to Charlotte and it proved far more damaging to her than good.
