In brief: Not practical

If prenatal care was only a discussion i suppose skype would work.
..But it isn't. Visits include checking urine for protein, BP checks, weight assessments, & hands-on exams of fetal position, growth, and heart rate patterns. Many of the important aspects just can't be done via video conference. Sorry, but talk to your OB regarding the number of visits, maybe you can have fewer. Good luck.
