Maarten's example doesn't show variable labels. Here is one way to do
it. I may well be overlooking an option in -parmest-.

Nick

sysuse nlsw88, clear
logit union married never_married collgrad south

local i = 0
foreach v in married never_married collgrad south {
	local l`v' : variable label `v'
}

parmest, norestore eform
foreach v in married never_married collgrad south {
	replace parm = "`l`v''" if parm == "`v'"
}

replace parm = "(intercept)" if parm == "_cons"

egen axis= axis(estimate), label(parm)

twoway bar  estimate axis, base(1) horizontal barw(.5) ///
            xline(1) ylab(, valuelabel ang(h) noticks) ||             ///
       rcap min95 max95 axis, horizontal               ///
            legend(order(1 "point estimate"            ///
                         2 "95% conf. int.") pos(6))   ///
            xtitle("odds ratio") ytitle("")
