Trigger email when CMS is used

Hello! I apologize if this is a repeat question but I was not able to find another one

My question is, is it possible to trigger a netlify function (or similar) when a specific type of data is entered into the Netlify CMS? For example, is it possible for me to trigger a netlify function that sends an email when I enter a new blog item into the CMS?
