Because the fetus has a very high rate of growth, and thus cell division to grow those new cells. So fetal tissue would show a very high rate and amount if mitosis.
**this is one of the reasons that certain medications that inhibit cell division or pathways involved in growth are detrimental to the fetus if taken by the mother during pregnancy.
