The 35-year-old says her efforts to balance the TV show's demanding work schedule and motherhood made her feel 'angry and frustrated', reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day. I didn't get to wake her up from her nap or do bath time or bedtime. I'd have to sneak into her room and kiss her when she was sleeping, hoping not to wake her up," she said.
She added: "I felt like my priorities were messed up. I was putting so much time and energy into just my work, but I was raised (to believe) that family comes first."
She has daughters Naleigh, 5, and Adalaide, 2, with husband Josh Kelley.
Heigl decided to relocated from here to Utah when she left the drama series in 2010 after five seasons.
She said: "We had big dreams of expanding our family, moving to the mountains and having a quieter life. Utah is spectacularly beautiful, the people are wonderful and kind, it's an easy commute from LA and there's no traffic!"
